Re: NVDA's behavior when you "Check for Update" - Why does it not see and fetch the latest version when a much earlier version is running?


But if the user doesn't have the prerequisites on their computer,
things could blow up in a hurry.

I was sitting there, and while it's possible I could be mis-remembering, I
don't think so.  I distinctly recall 2019.1.

In any case, since there is but one supported release version of NVDA at any
given moment in time to me that's the one, and only one, that any update
mechanism within NVDA itself should be seeking and fetching.
