I meant the static text label that is quite before the combo box really, not
in Tab order, but let me text your fixes first before continuing this part
of discussion. I am going to download todays nighty build for that.

May be, let me test this in todays nighty build.

Ok, here is the way to find out that JAWS is installed and what version is
The registry key:
contains all versions of JAWS that are located on this machine, that is the
subkeys: 9.0, 10.0, 11.0 mean that the versions 9.0, 10.0, 11.0 are
installed side by side - it is a very often practice in JAWS installations -
a lot of people use a couple versions of JAWS at the same time for different

If you find any of these keys in the path I have pointed in the registry,
you can use %UserProfile%\Application data\Freedom
Scientific\JAWS\^Version^\Settings\^Language^ folder to install the scripts.

Here ^version^ is full version of JAWS, like 9.0, 10.0 or 11.0 and it
corresponds directly to the registry key that points version of JAWS.
^Language^ is three letter abbreviation like ENU for English united states,
RUS - for Russian or FRC - French Canada - hopefull you can get these
standard abbreviations in installer scripts.

Since several versions of JAWS can be installed side by side at the same
partition in different folders - they will work independantly we need to
provide some kind of a listview with the found versions and checkboxes where
to install the scripts - fortunately all the installed versions can be found
while browsing through the registry - every has its own key.

Now when we know all the folders where JAWS scripts will be installed we can
copy them in these folders and need to compile them. For that goal every
registry key contains a 'Target' value containing the path to the folder
where JAWS binaries are located and you need to start the unique scompile
binary for every version of JAWS with the following command line: scompile
"%userProfile%\application data\freedom

That's all.

I believe that you need to disable the feature by default if you have not
found JAWS versions 9.0, 10.0 and 11.0 on the machine and enable it by
default in case you have found these versions - most likely the JAWS users
of these supported versions will like to install it and if they do not they
can uncheck the checkbox.

I also suggest to add a Browse button for those users taht do not have the
versions of JAWS supported and want to try if the scripts work for earlier
versions. In addition, the user can also have a flash version of JAWS on his
machine and in this case there is no registry keys and the settings can be
located whenever the user wants them to be located. For such clever users
the Browse button will be fine and no compilation needed - if they are so
non-standard - let them compile the scripts themselves.

Usually not, so may be it will be a good idea to show the dialogue something
like: 'if the scripts are not functional after installation, please restart
your copy of JAWS' but this is surely an option and is not needed - only my
own habbit to do the double and even thrice to be totally sure causes this
suggestion - usually when you Alt+Tab to the application dialogue JAWS
catches the compiled scripts automatically.

In any case I shall surely test all the changes to the installer very hard
to try to find all the possible errors in it both in English and Russian
interfaces of JAWS after installing the scripts.

Thank you.
