Re: JAWS 16 fails to start after installation

With the below method, not with just 16, the same exact thing happens to me
and I do the same thing.
So, I install from the .exe, reboot, nothing, activate the .exe again and
then the rest is normal.
No big deal on my part, I'm just here to state it’s the same for me.

Something similar happened when I upgraded, thus when the computer
restarted, I again relaunched the Jaws16 download and away it went!
Let me explain further in case maybe you guys had the same problem: I
executed the Jaws16 download as usual; it made the clicking sounds, and
after awhile the program reported that it needed to restart the system, so I
restarted. It restarted with Jaws15 in my case, as if I'd never executed the
download! so I reexecuted the download, and away it went, performing the
Jaws16 installation nicely!

For me Jaws 16 also failed to work after installing from the download.
It worked fine, though, after installing from the CD.

@ Eyeball,

As JAWS 16 is not working, I installed JAWS 15.

@ Feliciano,

Repairing JAWS didn't worked.
