Running Sphinx3 on Windows

I downloaded sphinx3, and all the other relevant code - sphinxbase, sphinxtrain and the an4 data. I have managed to successfully compile the source code on Windows using MS VC++ 9.0 (Visual Studio 2008 IDE), but when I try to run the perl script (I am using ActivePerl), "perl scripts_pl/RunAll.pl", it runs till "Phase 3: Forward-Backward" and then does nothing after that except showing this message:

"Waiting for C:/Tutorial/an4/model_parameters/an4.ci_cont_flatinitial/mixture_weights"

Please help!

I have been following the instructions I found at the CMU site.

Well, first of all I recommend you to install Linux. It's ridiculous to do speech research in Windows, nobody does that. This is true for both HTK and Sphinx.

Second, try to understand what program does, that will help you to resolve the issues like this one. In particular most likely you did some little mistake with tutorial setup, some typo in a file name or something like that. But to find the reason of the error you need to investigate the logs training process creates in logdir. It's usually not enough to provide the last message. Basically it's impossible to help you using the information you provided without the full access to logs.

i meet the same problem in linux . i find log file show that it lack sphinxbase.so , so I add path of sphinxbase.so and fix it now. I suggest you also add  the sphinxbase to your sphinxtrain bin file . hope it work for you.
