Re: Jaws 8 Vista final

Well Bruce it's good to know it's not just me here.  I guess I'm not the 
only one fed up with tech support at FS.  I hope they're lurking here as 
they normally do.  I know they are here because they have told me in the 
past that they are.  They just are not allowed to say anything to anyone. 
I've been contacted by Eric Damery from comments I've made here before about 
issues so I know they're listening and hope they see that many of us are 
frustrated and we just want to jaws to work as promised and to not keep 
saying ok guys that will have to be fixed in the next version as it's 
getting very old.

Rick

contacted them they said we don't know ans so we  are going to give up.
