April 2008 - The newest version of Virtual Woman (version .9359) fixes some problems users had installing to Vista.

November 2007 - Some installations of Windows Vista may be missing certain files Virtual Woman needs to run. To get these files installed on Vista, please click on this link at MicroSoft:


and download and run this file.

After you install this file, you may run the Virtual Woman install program normally and it should work correctly.

We will fix this problem in the installation in an upcoming release of Virtual Woman. Also note that in some versions of Vista Virtual Woman's speaking voice may not work, and will cut itself off. As we are in the process of upgrading the voice, this will also be fixed.

Does this mean that the next release of Virtual Woman is Vista only? No, the newest Virtual Woman will continue to be updated and tested to run on Windows 95, 98, XP, and Vista, among others. The vast majority of new features being added to Virtual Woman will run on all Windows operating systems. However, we will start to add some new features that are only able to run on Vista. We are very committed to backwards compatibility for Virtual Woman; we feel you shouldn't have to constantly upgrade your operating system just to get new features; though we will support new ones in Vista as they are added. After all, how many software companies do you know that still sell and support a version of their product that runs under Windows 3.0 (released in 1990)?

July 2007 - Virtual Woman Millennium beta .953 is now available as a full version install as well as a beta update. It replaces version .95.

June 2007 - A new public test of Virtual Woman Millennium, version .953, has been posted. If you are running any older version of Virtual Woman, the easiest way to update it is to use the Internet upgrade feature (The "Check for an Update to Virtual Woman" button) in the program itself. You can also download our Virtual Woman Quick Updater here.

June 2007 - The newest test beta of Virtual Woman Millennium .96 has been posted on the Compadre beta tester's site for members to download. Please try out the improved intelligence engine and post questions and comments in the Virtual Woman Forum.

June 2007 - The Virtual Woman Forum is open for all registered users in preparation for our newest upcoming beta release of Virtual Woman Millennium (version .96). We will be posting the latest release information and test downloads there. If you are a member you can access it through the Compadre beta tester's site.

May 2007 - The Washington Post reported that two bank security guards who had been distracted by their duties by playing Virtual Woman and then tried to cover up that fact allowed 52,000 US$ to be stolen. The bank manager refused to say whether they would be fired, but did say, "I don't think they are getting promoted."

April 2007 - A new version of Virtual Woman with improved intelligence is being prepared for beta testers. Besides a major upgrade to Virtual Woman's conversational skills, this version will feature bug fixes, upgrades to the user interface, and new options. As usual, it will first be made available free for registered users on our Compadre Virtual Woman testing site.
