Re: cannot upgrade NVDA


I just set my log to debug and warning, and ran the update again. This time, it worked. Riddle me that one.

I terminate the installation because I do not see anything happening. It sits there, and beeps. Right now, it has gone on for about 4 minutes.

Make a portable copy and see if that works first, then download the  new version manually, and try a new install forcing it. If that also fails, then it could well be something has become corrupted somewhere, but only a developer might have an inkling if its windows or nvda.

Here is a piece of the log. It doesn't seem to say much.

Hello, folks. There is a pretty serious issue with NVDA now. I
cannot upgrade to the latest next version. Even if I download it, it
just sits there. No upgrade happens. This has happened since I
upgraded to Windows 10 1803.

Apparently, people who have other versions of Windows are having the
same issue. I would say that this is critical. This has been the
issue for a few days.
