Re: Error 106

Gary,

I agree. Your suggestion of the physical hard drive volume number is great, 
since it's unique, and who ever changes that component very often? And of 
course JAWS is usually installed on that drive, so it actually is "married" 
to the drive, wherever it goes.

So that notion would support the idea of having JAWS on a removable drive 
that you could attach to any computer, to make it talk.

Gee...now I think I just discovered the thumb drive version of JAWS.

It's always seemed to me that FS could have come up with a scheme that would
be based on a permanent component of a computer such as the processor or C
drive.  A scheme based on the sum of the components of a modern computer
isn't going to work well since these components are constantly changing.
