Re: Deploying NVDA, seeing Windows 10 UAC block functionality


It's up, Brian. There are just things that the portable version can't
do that make using it pretty difficult for the average user, ie, they
can't sign into the login screen, they cant interact w/uac, etc. Yes,
they can turn on Narrator for those things, but that's a productivity
killer & a half.

Hi Jackie,

I used the portable installer, unless I misunderstood,  it does not
install but is unpacked and then ready to use.

Aaron, this sounds like NVDA is being run as a program
w/administrative privileges, which, of course, it shouldn't.

So let me ask you--did NVDA actually install to the desktop or no?

Good Afternoon,

I've been tasked with deploying NVDA to a VDI [Virtual Desktop
Infrastructure]  environment, which runs Windows 10.

While the NVDA portable install seems to work fine for me (the
person with
admin rights), no other user can run it.  The application is blocked by
Windows UAC.

The error found in the event logs is as follows:
The process failed to handle ERROR_ELEVATION_REQUIRED during the
creation of
a child process.

This seems to indicate that NVDA is trying to elevate itself without

Can someone clarify why this might happen, and what steps we can take
enable use of this tool?  We cannot disable UAC or limit it's current
functionality due to security policies.

Thank you,
