Re: Jaws installation question for Windows 7 laptop

This helps as always, and is most appreciated.

I'm going to be doing the install from the CD, but it's great to have a back-up plan to use the FS web site if something doesn't take with the CD.

Thanks again.

Hello tom;

Yes this is true,

In order to have the right jaws installation,
One needs to no if they have a 32 bit, or 64bit machine.
I believe, if your installing jaws from a cd,
Windows7 will determine the right installation.
If your installing a download from FS, you will need to choose the right

To determine whether the machine is a 32 or 64 bit machine.

1, desktop,

2 highlight computer,

3, now press alt+enter to bring up the properties.

4, route jaws to pc, and start to down arrow,
You should hear; something like,
System type,
And then 32 or 64 bit,

Another way is to, use the keystroke,
Windows+ the pause key,

Hope this helps.

Hi, folks.

I have read some discussion about the need to determine whether a windows 7
machine is either 32-bit or 64-bit prior to actually installing Jaws.

I have been told that you must select either the 32-bit or 64-bit Jaws
package before conducting the installation process.

Is this true?

If so, how do you make that selection from the Jaws 12 installation CD?
