Multiple JAWS Versions On One License


Annabelle Susan Morison
 

Hi, it's Annabelle.
Freedom Scientific just upgraded my license of JAWS to JAWS 15 for free, and I have a couple important questions. First of all, is it OK for me to have two versions of JAWS on the same machine? More importantly, is it OK to have two versions on the same license?

It's perfectly fine, and probably encouraged. You're authorized to run any version of JAWS up to and including whichever version your SMA stops at. In the "about JAWS" dialogue box, it'll give you a number of upgrades remaining. This is the number of versions of JAWS you're authorized to use with this license. You could have every single one of them installed on your machine and switch between them as needed if you were so inclined.

And you can install higher versions but then you can only run them in 40 minute demo mode.

I am running Windows 7 and have some difficulties with the internet.  Do you think I would do any better if I were to put an older version of Jaws on my computer?  If so, which would you reccommend?  Thanks.  Also, would additional versions use up my SMAs?

That depends exactly what problems you're having, and what version you're running now. That may be beneficial to put in a new thread. To your question, using the versions of JAWS you're licensed for won't use up your SMA's. Only if you have to do a reinstall, or somehow the authorization gets deleted.

Even then, System Restore might put you right again.  It worked for me a few years back after a faulty shutdown.

System restore wouldn't bring the authorization back if it mysteriously went missing. I don't think Windows considers it a settings file.

You can run any version up to the one you are licensed for. It is only the ones after your license that will be unlicensed.

It was one of those situations where I was having a lot of trouble with Juno, which I eventually abandoned.  Furthermore, I was using Chrome, which was a no-no at that time.  The crash trashed the authorization, and Restore brought it back—end of story.]

 

Another time my antivirus put the volume control in quarantine—gotta watch those volume controls.  Of course, I got it out but, in doing so, lost it;  Restore fixed that too.

 

Overall, that’s one of the coolest tools Microsoft has ever given us.

Annabelle, If you have  installed and licensed JAWS version 15 on a computer, you can install previous versions of JAWS On that computer using the same ILM authorization key, no need to authorize any other version of JAWS you might install on that computer, this is because any other versions of JAWS you decide to install, will have shared components between them.
 
HTH
