Re: Blind Extra Leaves Traces on Your System, Even After Uninstallation


This has been reported as an issue at:

Most likely, the addon has removed all files related to the addon, but
the folder is still present. Go to %appdata%\NVDA\Addons and delete
the folder from there.

Thank you,

Something is telling whatever does this to look for that add on even though
it is no longer there. I don't know where that information is stored or how
it might be removed. At any event, it sounds like a curiosity rather than
anything that matters so if you get the answer, that's fine but it shouldn't
cause any problems, I don't think it even causes a noticeably longer time
for NVDA to boot. But it does raise the interesting question about whether
uninstalling other add ons cause not found messages for them as well.

Blind Extra is not there. I checked the path, and the addons manager;
it's not on his machine.

Go to %appdata%\nvda\addons and delete BlindExtra.

Hello All,

After doing some work on a friend's system, I noticed something odd:

I asked my friend if he ever used the "Blind Extra" addon, which he
confirmed. However, it was uninstalled when I checked his addons

What is triggering this error? I'm assuming that it is some trace of
the addon, but for the life of me I can not find it. Any help would
be appreciated.
