[access-uk] Re: data transfer from an old Desktop to a new laptop

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for those solutions. I'll talk with S&S on Monday. I don't really wish 
to upgrade to version 6 if I don't have to; let's just hope that the 
commercialpowers don't force me too.

What's the USB dongle, and how does that work?

  Hi,

  Solutions:

  1.  Use a USB floppy drive.
  2.  Speak to SNS about changing to the Internet based version ASAP, you may 
have to upgrade to V6 though.
  3.  Speak to SNS about getting a USB dongle for it.

  Hth,
  Andrew.

   Hi Andrew,

  Thanks for that, guessed it wouldn't be that simple; after all it's JAWS. OK 
I can install the licence onto the laptop no problem, The difficulties arrive 
with the authorisation process. I've only got the auth keys on a floppy, and 
obviously the laptop has no 3.5 inch drive.

  What are the solutions with this?

    Hi,

    With JFW no - you specificly have to remove auth key and put it on new 
machine, or if you use both machines just install on new machine.  c:\jaws50 
can be copied over after successful installation of Jaws onto new machine, but 
you need to go through installation as it does things to registry.

    Andrew.

    Hi,

    I've just inherited a Pentium 4 laptop. Not sure of the rest of the spec 
because it won't arrive till Monday.

    What I want to know is can I use the data transfer wizard to transfer from 
an old Desktop running win200 and JFW 4.51  to my laptop running XP Pro? In 
particular, can I transfer the Jfw 4.51 onto the lap top in this manner without 
having to faf about with removing it first from the desktop saving the auth 
key, reinstalling it onto the laptop and reauthorising it?

    Thanks for anything on this

    Colin
