I know because I installed JAWS on my new 64 bit computer from the DVD
in 2013 and the 32 bit version was installed. I have never installed
from the DVD again and now just download and install the 64 bit

Hi Kelly,

Out of curiosity, why do you say Jaws installs a 32 bit version on a 64 bit

system? By accident I tried to run a 32 bit installer to my 64 bit system,

& I got an error message. I don't recall what the error message stated, but

it had to installing the wrong version on my computer. If you look in both

your Program Files & Program Files X86 folders on the root of your OS drive

you'll see that Freedom Scientific folders in both, but only if you are
running a 64 bit system. If you're running a 32 bit system, I forget which

1, but you'll only have 1 of the Program folders, not both on your OS
Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool.

I also have noticed that the DVD installs the 32 bit version of JAWS
even though my machine can run 64 bit software. If you want to ensure
that the 64 bit version of JAWS is installed, then download the 64 bit
version and use the DVD as a backup without Internet access.

No, the downloaded version is always the better one to use because by the
time the DVD's are received the new version of Jaws usually had at least
update so if you install from the DVD you just have to update right
afterwards. I really think FS should ask their customers who wants a DVD
who doesn't and those who don't should get $10 off their SMA.

Just got my Jaws 2018 disk today. Is there anything on this DVD versus
downloaded version of Jaws 2018?
