moderated having trouble checking for jaws update on win 10 and win 11 laptops


molly the blind tech lover
 

Greetings.
I am running Jaws 2022 on two laptops, one a win 10 machine, the other
running win 11, 22h2. When I check for Jaws updates on both machines,
I get a message from Jaws informing me that I have the latest Jaws
updates. As I've heard that Jaws 2023 is now available, I am wondering
why I Jaws is not informing me that Jaws 2023 is available?
Any answers will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Regards
Molly

Hi, Molly. If you are a JAWS user with an expiring SMA, you won't see the JAWS 2023 update, until you have an SMA that will allow you to install JAWS 2023 in other than demo mode. This may also be the case if you are using the yearly license, if you are not authorized to install JAWS 2023 under your yearly license.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought one could receive all the Jaws
updates as long as their license has not yet expired. Mine does not
expire until some time in 2023.
I guess I'm just confused lol.

Hi Molly,


you will not get update notifications when a new version comes out, e.g. from 2022 to 2023, etc.

However, you will get update notifications within one main version so you can install the updates from within that JAWS version.

Whenever there's a hotfix update, JAWS will notify you unless you turned that feature off.


You will have to go to the FS website to download major releases. By releases I'm talking about main versions such as 2021, 2022, 2023, and so on.


Regards,

Nermin

Hi, Molly. You should receive notifications of updates to the next version of JAWS if,
1. Automatic notification of updates is checked,
and
2. If your license is current.

If Automatic notification of updates is checked, try restarting JAWS, and see if you get the prompt to install an update.

Hi, Nermin. I was running JAWS 2022 this morning, and received a prompt to install JAWS 2023. But I am running JAWS with an SMA, not a yearly license.

If Molly is not getting the notification for the JAWS 2023, she should press JAWS/INSERT+J, followed by the letter H, followed by the letterP. JAWS 2022, will then check for any updates. If there is an update for 2022 available, that will be downloaded and installed first. Once the download has finished, and Molly restarts the computer, and follows the above procedure, Molly should then get the notification for JAWS 2023.

Molly.
Do you have your software maintenance agreement up-to-date? That might be your problem here.

I have seen virtually any conceivable piece of software that's supposed to automatically update "get a hitch in it's gitty-up" and simply refuse to do so.  I can count the number of times I've dealt with Windows Update not doing so for reasons unknown.

If you know your licensing is in order, the easiest thing to do when you've determined an automatic update that should occur isn't occurring is to go to the source website and download the latest installer manually, then run it.

You'll probably then go anywhere between some years to "forever" without the hitch happening again, but if it were to do so, . . .

Hi, Ashleigh. Molly isn't using a Software Maintenance Agreement (SMA). She is using the Yearly license.

Well, I hate to be a party pooper however, I had no problem downloading the 023 version on all 4 computers, 3 lap tops and one desktop. I powered on the computers and was told there was a update for JAWS, then activated it.

I think that most of us can confidently say that we had the same
experience as you did.
Generally, I have never had an issue with updating to a new version of
JFW; and, of course, the only msgs on the topic that folks will obviously
post
is when something goes wrong and they need guidance as to what they should
do next.
MSGS such as yours should give folks confidence to install the new version
if they are licensed or have a SMA to do so.

Greetings, all.
I ended up going to freedom scientific's website and downloading Jaws
2023 from there. Where can I find the check for automatic updates to
Jaws? I want to be sure it's checked, but can't remember where to find
it. Thanks.
