Re: Error while updating to NVDA 2018.1 via the NVDA update utility.

This is a great message. Also, compare UAC to what Linux users have to do, typing in their whole root password when installing or updating programs sometimes. Compared to that, one keystroke is nothing.

It's a minimum amount of inconvenience to respond when the UAC prompt appears.  All you have to do is use the alt y command.  Why are people so casual about disabling a security feature that is minimally inconvenient?  You issue one command.  Compare that very minor inconvenience to what you may have to doo if you are infected because UAC is off.  I realize that malware can circumvent UAC, and, from what I've been told, it isn't difficult.  But still, what if you could have prevented nfection by having it on at a minimum of inconvenience?

Hi,
Yes, but this time, say "yes" when UAC (User Account Control) screen
appears.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hello, All,

and got the following error. I'm not sure what is relevant, so I just
coppied the entire output of the log viewer.

Should I try updating again?
