    Hi Jake. If you mean the open book process tab in windows task manager and 
going to end button, I just need the name of the process.  Then I should be 
good to go with your previous explanations. Thanks.

  Thanks, Jake.  I'm not sure whether or not I want to bother with it.  But 
I'll keep you in mind if I ever decide I want to take the trouble.

  Thanks.

    Hi Evan and Cheryl,

    I can successfully run OpenBook on my laptop with Kurzweil installed. It is 
in a very round about way though. Opening OB won't actually open it, but the 
process is running. Killing the process and then trying again should allow it 
to open, just be prepared for ViaVoice not to work and to get an error message 
about it.

    I can provide more step by step instructions if you need them, later when I 
have a few minutes to go through the process again, as it's been sometime since 
I've done it.

    Jake

      Thanks, Cheryl.

      I don't remember where I saw it, either on this list or the K1000 list, 
but I swear that I remember someone said that they were able to run either one 
on the same machine.  I wish I could remember who that was.  I really don't 
expect to need it much, but the irritating thing is that I was not even using 
the viavoice with it when I installed K1000.  Apparently, though, K1000 did 
something to something that OpenBook feels it needs to run.  That 
vaguely-worded hypothesis is the best I can come up with at the moment.

        Hi Evan and list. I've had the same problem for the last year. I can't 
access openbook 5.0 for the    
         sole purpose of converting scanned text/reference works in ark format 
to rtf for personal library.  I've been using kurzweil for a couple years now. 
-- Of course I can't scan now because we burned out the motor of our Epson 
4490.  Isn't technology great (she said sarcastically).

          I can no longer use OpenBook.  Despite the fact that I was using JAWS 
with it, and not its unstable Viavoice, whenever I open it now, I get a 
viavol.exe error, and OpenBook will not talk to me with JAWS.  What a hunk o' 
junk!  I know that K1000 is using Viavoice.  I set it up that way to read, 
because I didn't want to read with Neospeech.  I wanted to scan a couple of 
pages in this book I was refering to in which I lost all the em dashes to see 
what it would do with the same material.

          While I expect to use K1000 from now on, OpenBook was paid for, and I 
don't think it is unreasonable to expect to be able to access it whenever I 
want it.

          Anybody got any advice?
