I am amazed at the lowness of people that want to cause trouble.  This is 
criminal and I will be contacting the police department to see what I might 
do about it.

Subject: [bct] JAWS Without Authorization

Hi all,

I have obtained a copy of the executable of the latest beta of JAWS 7.1 from 
a Freedom Scientific employee that does not require authorization to 
operate, and that unlocks the remote desktop feature. I don't want to get 
into trouble, so I have posted it on yousendit.com for 7 days only, so if 
you want it please get it as soon as possible.

The link is


The file name is jfw.exe. When you run the jfw.exe file, if it is not in the 
same location as the other jaws files (usually c:\program files\freedom 
scientific\jaws\7.10), it'll search for your jaws 7.1 installation and make 
sure you have the correct version. It'll then install the new file, and then 
it'll unload and reload jaws automatically. You may want to save the file, 
as you can install jaws on any computer from now on and simply overwrite the 
old jaws file with the new one to get around the activation issue. If you 
want to place the jaws file in your jaws program folder first, you'll have 
to unload jaws and use narrator to do that as you can't overwrite the 
original jaws file while it is being used.
