You mean you can only start your personal, valid copy of Jaws from a hotkey 
after the demo mode on a newer version turns itself off? Is there some kind 
of safeguard in the demo version that prevents you from starting your 
regular Jaws from a desktop icon or from the Start/Programs menu? If so, why 
did they fix it this way? To make it really extra inconvenient to use the 
demo mode, so you'd be discouraged by all the hassle and just go ahead and 
buy the new version?

Thanks. I'm asking because my own copy of Jaws sometimes loads in 40 minute 
mode when I exit and relaunch it, and I want to be very careful not to 
damage my own software by doing the wrong thing.

Hi Rich,

    As long as you set a hot key for JAWS, such as Control alt j, you should 
be able to launch JAWS 7 once the demo for JAWS 8 runs out.

    Hope this helps,

  I am thinking about trying jaws 8 in demo mode. What I am wondering, once 
the 40 minutes are up, can I unload version 8 and go back to version 7 
without rebooting my system?

  thanks for the info.
