5250RE: [magnifiers] ZoomText 9.1 locked out...
- May 1, 2012Johny,
I noticed warning message telling about new version too but I had no problem
with it, just like you.
I use Zoomtext 9.19 with Windows 7 64 bits.
I remark that the first two or three times I accounted this warning message
in my screen, I was in a hurry and did not check box Dont inform me
again. So I was shown this dialog box sometimes before I disabled it.
Despites it did not cause bugs or instability in my computer.
Your friends report sounds really strange.
By the way, I have not tested Zoomtext 10 in my computer yet. Do you folks
have a opinion about how it performs in comparison with Zoomtext 9.19? I
dont mean about new features. My question is: did you find Zoomtext 10
faster or more stable than Zoomtext 9.1?

Subject: [magnifiers] ZoomText 9.1 locked out...
My friend told me that she visited my other friend who is low vision, a low
vision friend experienced a computer problem. My sighted friend came over to
help her. Found out that ZoomText might be causing Windows 7 to be in "Safe
Mode" after it keeps popping up requesting her to upgrade from ZoomText 9.1
to 10. A sighted friend told her needs to upgrade to ZoomText 10. I myself
use ZoomText 9.19 on both laptop & desktop. Windows XP & 7. No lockouts for
both platoforms. So, I tried to click "Don't inform me..." and it worked
fine so, no more bugging me. I think that my l/w friend didn't click on
"Don't inform me again..." Oh well. Unfortunately, my copy of ZoomText is a
state-funded copy. I consulted with my Deaf-Blind Unit supervisor and am
waiting for them to approve a fund for me to receive ZoomText 10 copy later.
During this time, they're quite busy with a severe Budget Cuts for FY'13, I
Anyone of you experience with ZoomText "Lockout" from running ZoomText 9.1
after the first pop-up message informed you of "ZoomText 10 is available!"?
