I always thought you could use Jaws under Windows Pro in demo mode.

It's even more simple than this - JAWS standard doesn't work with XP Pro.  To
use XP Pro you need JAWS Pro.

Hi Kevin,

In very simple terms, XP Professional is designed for high security network
systems which private users are most unlikely to require.  Such systems are
used in commercial companies where individual users are only allowed access
to specific areas of the system or network, usually determined by their job
specification.

Clearly you would not want an employee in the sales department being able to
access payroll records, for example.

Consequently, JAWS absolutely MUST follow all security measures of such a
system.

Now in essence, there is only the security issue difference between JAWS
Standard and JAWS Professional.  However the higher cost also reflects the
degree of supporting an XP Professional user.  As I dealer, I was initially
somewhat taken aback by this, but after 5 or 6 years of selling JAWS, I can
assure you that when an XP Professional support call comes up, it isn't
usually five minute call, and indeed some cases can go on for days.

Nowadays, many schools, colleges and universities demand XP Professional
before they will allow students to access their networks.  However, for the
private user, even with a small home network, XP Home version is perfectly
adequate.

That said, many of the more powerful PCs and laptops now come with XP
Professional as standard, simply because of network capability demand.

George.

winxp professional, except as a demo. but i'm not sure of the exact technical
reason, except it's something to do with the authorisation or something? can
someone give me a good explanation of the exact reason?
