Re: Question on activation count

As long as you have purchased JAWS 9 through a SMA you can re-install it from the web site as FS has the record of your SMA and what it covers.If you have the SMA for version 9 you should have received a CD to install it directly as there were some major changes with Version 9. With an SMA you are entitled to the CD for the versions that are covered.

On a related subject, here's something I have been wondering about. I originally installed JAWS 8 on my computer with the CD, and upgraded to JAWS 9 from the FS web site, because my original SMA allowed for one version upgrade. JAWS 9 is currently my default version. Suppose my hard drive failed and after a new hard drive is installed along with the Windows OS, I reinstall JAWS 8 again using the CD. Would I still be able to upgrade to JAWS 9 again under the original SMA? Or would JAWS 9 run only in demo mode after I install it again from the FS web site? I assume that I would need at least two activations to reinstall JAWS 8 and then JAWS 9. I'm asking this just in case.

Hi, all.

I'm between computers here, and have a question about Jaws activation

I know I could call FS about this, but figured I might get a quicker answer
from the list.

Regarding activations, does a single-license Jaws user like myself have a
given number of activations for each separate version of Jaws, or is the
allotted number of 3 activations constant across all versions of Jaws

I am getting a couple of new computers set up for both office and home, and

am trying to figure out how best to proceed, while still keeping an older
Windows XP machine around as a back-up in case that is needed as well.

I have Jaws 12, but a few earlier versions of Jaws that I could probably
use if neded, if that would give me more activations to work with.
