Hi Rob,

I think you have to run it from your installation disk or from the file you 
downloaded.

How do we run jaws repare these days.  Not an option under the add/remove
programs, not an option when you open the installation file, and not under 
jaws
utilities or any of the programs available under the jaws supmenu of 
programs.
