Hazel, There are two kinds of Jaws, and two kinds of Windows operating systems that each match up. With Windows XP, you have the Home version and the Pro version and from what you say, you have the Pro version installed. Similarly with Jaws, you have a Standard version, which works with the Home version of Windows, and a Pro version, which works with the Pro version of Windows. You'll either need to down grade your Windows to XP Home, or perhaps, as you have it Windows 98, or alternatively, upgrade Jaws to the Pro version, so that it will work on the operating system you have installed now. If you can swing it, your best bet would be to see if you can exchange your copy of XP Pro for a copy of XP Home, as XP is a better version of Windows than 98 is, but with all these suggestions, there may be a cost involved in getting things to match up.
