Can't launch Vista's speech recognition wizard.

Although I knew about the speech recognition feature in Vista Business I never wanted to try it until I accidentally came across a demo video of speech recognition in Vista. It seems it could save a lot of time, especially for those who work on a lot of papers and reports.

I tried to launch the speech recognition feature but an error window popped up saying the wizard could not be launched. It asked me to check if my audio hardware is working fine and if it is configured properly. I checked all my settings for audio but everything seems normal. The drivers for the microphone are installed and I can even record through the inbuilt microphone. I get the error message window for all the applications under the speech recognition options page; for example, when I click on "configure microphone for speech recognition" the same error window pops up saying speech recognition wizard could not start. What could I be missing?
