They should do it like Microsoft. Only require reactivation is significant hardware changes were made, like Microsoft do for Windows Product Activation. So, tie the JAWS serial number to the Windows installation. Tell them that and they'll think you've come from the sky. Lol.

good, beat them around the head and shoulders vigorously for me, I tried to talk to them about this "reauthorization" thing when you change hardware in your computer, and got pigeonholed, I intend to hit them again, but it's frustrating, the only hardware they should be paying attention to is the video card and sound card, and you shouldn't need to reauthorize jaws just because you installed a better cd/dvdrw drive in your unit, grhrhrhrhrhrho'o'o'o'o'o'o'wlhlhlhlhlhlhlhl! if I could make it I'd come in a swinging, but I can't blaze it to... anyway, take care and hopefully have fun at the event, elf "Three things that should NEVER! be brought together; a laptop computer, a full cup of coffee, and a sneeze!" - Unknown Author- ----- Original Message ----- From: "Ken Perry" <whistler@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: <programmingblind@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Friday, March 19, 2010 5:03 PM Subject: RE: Cygwin and JAWS 11 on Windows 7 This needs to go to FS not to this list they need to hear this stuff.

I've been switching back and forth between Cygwin and a virtual machine running Linux. I need to access Linux servers from Windows both for web development and system administration. I have now decided to go back to Cygwin. Everything works as expected on Windows XP. Currently the most annoying issues on Windows 7 regarding Cygwin is the speech problems. I understand that FS are working to solve this? I also discovered another big issue for me. I use the "virtualize window" feature to open the text in the cygwin console so that I can easily copy/paste the text. I need this feature all the time to do my job. When I press jaws+alt+w to virtualize the console window the output in the virtual viewer is trashed. The commands and output don't appear as expected. It's a mess! An example: embla:~$ ls graphic 192 bin Mail sent www embla:~$ graphic 545 Expected output: embla:~$ ls bin Mail sent www embla:~$ When reviewing the output in the cygwin window with my Braille display the text appear as expected. That's also the case when using the JAWS cursor to review the cygwin console window. This issue also occurs in cmd.exe and powershell.exe without cygwin even running. So both problems are related to JAWS, Win 7 and cmd.exe and powershell.exe. I can of course edit the output after copying it from the virtual viewer, but with more complex commands and output it's not very efficient. Do you think that the speech and the virtual viewer problems are related? Do you know a person at FS I can contact regarding this? This is very important to me, especially when we'll migrate to Windows 7 at work. __________ View the list's information and change your settings at http://www.freelists.org/list/programmingblind __________ View the list's information and change your settings at http://www.freelists.org/list/programmingblind __________ View the list's information and change your settings at http://www.freelists.org/list/programmingblind
