Subject: Old versions of JAWS


I was just curious to know if it's possible to install an older version of JAWS onto your computer or if the newer version would block the installation. I have V11 and V13 already on my hard drive, but would like to install V9 if it's not going to be a hassle. Thanks for any help you can provide.

I am not sure if u can install an older version now. But I still have five
versions of jaws on my computer. I can run any one of them just by
selecting the one that I want to run. I would suggest that you try it and
see what happens. Make sure that you close the version of jaws that yyou
are using first. Mike

This question has come up before, and the answer isn't simple. If I remember
correctly, the recommendation is that you uninstall your existing versions,
install the prior one, then reinstall the new versions. Presumably when
uninstalling, you'd need to agree to delete shared files. In that case,
among other things, you'd lose your settings. So yes, it has great potential
to be a hassle.

In addition to what Adrian said below, even if you install the versions of JFW in order, the shared components from later versions can sometimes change the way that earlier versions work. I wouldn't go to the trouble of uninstalling and reinstalling all of those versions of JFW on the chance that version 9 would work the way it did before.
