Re: Inconsistent JAWS version numbers

Adrian Spratt

Impressive memory, Mike. Following your response, I downloaded the release
file that is consistent with what JAWS "About" is reporting to me. Now I
can't perform a repair. I've tried a variety of methods recommended on this
list, including:

1. Press enter on the .exe file and look for the repair button

2. Run the .exe file from the run window

3. Typed the filename in the run window followed by space repair

4. click on "uninstall" from within programs/jaws13/tools.

Nowhere does the repair button appear, even if I go several steps into the
uninstall process, though not so far that my version will be uninstalled. In
the case of each install, JAWS has terminated the process on recognizing the
existing installation.

All my notes about repair relates to versions between 7 and 12. Has anyone
done a repair on JAWS 13? In that case, any suggestions?

Yo Adrian,

After V13.0.1105 came out there were many complaints about it regarding
Excell & Outlook so, shortyly afterwards they came out with V13.0.1106. I
don't remember the time frame but, it was only a few weeks later that 1106
came out.
Take care.

Hi. I make a practice of saving the executable JAWS file each time I install
a JAWS upgrade. The release of JAWS 13 that I have installed is shown in the
"About" section of help as 13.0.1006. However, the latest release number in
my JAWS executable files is 13.0.1005, off by just the last digit. Can
anyone explain?

Here's the reason this question isn't just academic. JAWS is acting a little
strange lately and I want to do a repair, for which I would need the correct
executable file.

I haven't installed JAWS 14 because of another lister's reports of
encountering problems with WordPerfect, my preferred word processor. I also
didn't install the latest release of 13 because of other lister concerns at
the time, although I've forgotten what they were.
