I'll try getting hold of a sighted person, although it can be kinda tricky, since most of my friends are blind. However, i tried seeing if i could capture some kind of error message using the "say all" feature of the screen reader, but i didn't get one. Maybe the screen reader was too slow to catch the message... It sounds unbelievable though. I wish there was some kind of log file where errors were reported, rather like in Linux.

Krister, I hate to do this to you, but I think the only way we can start to get to the bottom of this is to find a person who can see the screen and see if sound forge really does attempt to start, and if so, is there an error message when it dies? I have never had this problem and without knowing more, I would simply be guessing.
Sorry I don't have a ready answer.

Now let's see so that i don't mess things up here... When i hit "enter" on the SF icon, the hard disk spins for a while and then i get thrown back out on the desk top. To me it looks as SF half starts and then for some reason stops again. Does this make sence at all to you? The Sony knowledge base mentions this problem and says that one should try starting "terminal services" from the admin tools of the Win XP control panel, but it's already started and can't be stopped, so i am totally at
a loss here. /Krister

That is a totally different problem. It sounds like the difficulty you are having is not getting Sound Forge to start. It will not show up in the list of running applications if it has not started yet. Is this what you are having trouble with?

If JAWS, you can always press insert F 10 to open a list of the currently runningand then press Enter on the one you want.Well i started Sound forge with Jaws running and pressed ins-f10. "Running applications: Desktop 1 of 1" Sound forge hadn't even started... /Krister
