Re: Repairing JAWS 13

Hello there;
Here's another way you could perform a jaws repair.

1. Place a copy of the Jaws executible version that you want to repair into
the main root of the " C " drive.
For example;
If you are running Jaws13 most recent you would paste a copy of "
J13.0.718-32bit.exe " into the main root of the " C " drive.

2. With the Jaws " .exe " pasted into the "C" drive, highlight the " .exe ",
and press F2 as if you were going to edit this line of text. now press
control+C=copy to copy this Jaws executible, press escape to close the edit
field, and press Alt + F4 to close the C drive.
What you want to do is place just the title of the Jaws version into the
Windows Run Dialogue box and not the file. If you were to place the Jaws
executible into the Run box without copying as you did as per the
instructions above you would have pasted the whole file into the Run Box
instead of just the title.
3. Now that you have just the title copied to the clipboard, press
Windows-key+R=run to open the Run Dialogue Box. Type, remember to type a
capitalC ,"
C:\ " without the quotes or
spaces and press control + V to paste the Jaws title, press your end key to
take the cursor to the end of the title and type in the following " /type
repair" without the quotes but, with the spaces . Below is what your line
of text should look / read like.

C:\J13.0.718-32bit.exe /type repair

Read character by character to make sure you have put in the proper spaces,
Forward & back slashes and text. press the home key to go to the front of
the title and press enter to start the repair.

Hi Cindy,

This is what I got from Freedom Scientific just last Wednesday. They
originally wanted me to do a repair of JAWS by starting up the JAWS install
program and when it came to a choice of repair, install or remove I was
suppose to choose repair. But I never got to this option of a repair the
install program would say I needed to uninstall the previous version of

It turns out when I installed JAWS 13 from the DVD and I went ahead and did
a update through JAWS it was the wrong thing to do. They said never do the
auto up date always down load the full install from their web site remove
JAWS and install from scratch. It appears when JAWS does a update only some
files are updated and not all.

I was trying to download the newest update to JAWS 13 on my net book
computer. It seemed to be taking a very long time, and then it said it
couldn't complete the update. It suggested I do a repair of JAWS 13 and try

again. How do I repair JAWS 13?

Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
