Re: Installing NVDA and disabling some sort of security setting

That is a bit vague. If you are using an admin account on windows 10, I don't recall any issues unless they have introduced something in the recent updates that I'm unaware of.
Certainly I was quite disappointed that the portable version of nvda was significantly less useful on windows 10 due to its more extensive use of UIA than its forebears, like 7.

Subject: [nvda] Installing NVDA and disabling some sort of security setting

Recently, I saw a message that talked about the need to disable some sort of security settings in windows 10 when you were installing NVDA. It was a folder I think that you couldn’t get access to and less you disable the setting, and NVDA needs to have that access when it installs. I’ve just spent some time looking through old messages trying to find this and I can’t. Can anybody help me out? I’m sorry to be so vague, but I just can’t find this message.
