RE: Question to Dave

Dave,
 
I have a similar folder. However, many executable files aren't assigned
readily recognizable names. Do you happen to memorize which file is
associated with which application, or do you have a way of identifying them
within this folder? I've considered renaming some of them, but I worry doing
so might affect installation.

Daniel,
 
at the expense of consuming my hard drive space, I keep just about every
executable installation file in a folder called "source files" just so that
I have it when needed.

WOW sounds like you had fun! Joking honestly there's nothing worse when
installing a update only to find that it doesn't work or something is broken
in a programme etc. Thanks for the Backup lesson! I'll bare it in mind! Next
time when I get a programme I'll save the file.exe to my harddrive for
future reference. funny enough I have actually got the file programme of WLM
2009 on my computer just in case anything happens!
Thanks

Daniel,
 
When I went back to 12.0.525 after the disaster with 12.0.1158 I had to
remove JAWS 12 completely and fortunately still had JAWS 11.0.1476 on my
machine to use in the interim.
 
I then located my previous downloaded 12.0.525 and did a clean install. Then
I copied all my settings\enu files that I had backed up before the disaster
to get back to a better place. Key points:
 
1. Did not use any activations since this is the same computer.
2. Always download the various revisions and keep them safe on your computer
or an external device for later use.
3. Always, always, always, always back up all your user settings files
before installing the next revision of JAWS, just in case.

Hi Dave, just cureious when yu went back to the current version of V12,
because of the thing you didn't like with excel, I was just wondering about
something.
When one does that do they have to lituarly uninstall there jaws version
then update to the current version that is given through the automatic
update feature or just do a check for updates to find it again. Also this is
what I want to be careful with when you went back did you have to use one of
your keys that you get with the product. 
In anycase I don't use excel and I have not moved from the current version I
would rather wait until it becomes a release. 
Thanks 
Daniel
