Installing the Agent Character Editor
To install the Microsoft Agent Character Editor (available in the Microsoft Platform SDK or at http://www.microsoft.com/agent2/sdk/ace.exe), open its self-extracting cabinet file. This will automatically install the appropriate files on your system. If you are downloading the Agent Character Editor from the Microsoft Web site, the downloading software gives you the option to save the file and open it or open it automatically as soon as the download completes.
If you plan to use a TTS engine for your character's output you need to install that engine before you begin creating your character. You may want to confirm the engine's vendor support for Microsoft Agent and for information on licensing provisions for use and distribution.
