OK to further clarify my issue and to answer Gentlemen Darrel: My remark "free-ware" was only intended to add a bit of hummer to the posting; As I honestly do not believe Jaws' latest version would be free-ware. I have not purchased any previous Jaws software; And therefore have no such authorization key previously installed on this machine. Too this is a brand new computer bought only last week and in fact has not ever had any Jaws installed on it. Only this single download from the H J web site. So what of that? Help? Why no key needed? -- To post a message to the list, send it to jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx To unsubscribe from this mailing list, send a message to jfw-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the word unsubscribe in the subject line.
