Jaws Scripts for Adobe Flex

Hi all,

I'm wondering if anyone has successfully used the Jaws scripts
offered by Adobe to make their Flex technology accessible:


I tried installing the Flex 1.5-2 script file for Jaws 6.10 & above,
but received an error message.:

"Could not back up your original files. Check the validity of your
Jaws installation."

Unfortunately they have packaged everything into an exe file, so I
can't copy the script files into the right folders, as I would
normally do with new scripts.

Thoughts from anyone who has been down this road are would be much appreciated.
