HIDWatch.dll Read Error 1167

HIDWatch Error
I am a medical transcriptionist and use a foot pedal to do my work. The above error keeps popping up and my foot pedal stops working. I have to exit my document and the program and sometimes even reboot to resume my work which is ruining my productivity. Does anyone know the source of this error and how to fix it? Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I found this in this thread:

“…just a note to let you know if others have this same problem they should reinstall Express Scribe pedal drivers. The older version of Express Scribe used the HIDWatch.dll, but the newest version does not…”

Here is the link to NCH software:

    Sorry to read that. Have you tried updating (or at least reinstalling) the drivers/software you use ?

    Yes. I tried that and I still get the error. Very frustrating.

    Have you asked the pedal manufacturer for support ? When did this problem start ? Did you install something (hardware/software) new recently ? Can you share the pedal brand, and the name of the software you use ?

    This is an Infinity Foot Pedal (IN-USB-1) and Winscribe is the software I use.

    theres is 1 solution to the problem, i found..u should not restart the comp but rather shut down. while shutting down, take out the usb completely, after shutting down...just wait for 10 seconds...reinsert the usb simultaneously as you switch on the computer..and then try. this is the method i've been using...but this affects your productivity.

    The HIDWatch.dll error shows up becuase of fluctations in the elecrical circuts in your home or when there is sparking in an on/off switch in your computer.

    Just close the audio player, plug out the foot pedal and plug it in again.  Start the audio player.  This works for me.
