Re: A security question about the dll tool

Are you referring to the COM registration fixing tool? If so, I'm pretty sure that all it does it write CLS IDs to the registry for accessibility related DLLs.

I see in the new RC3 of nvda 2018.2 that the dll registration tool is run on installĀ  now. However if one puts a portable version on a stick and takes it to another computer at a library, and uses it portably, what would running the registration tool do when run?
I mean it could well be that security would stop it working at all but if it were allowed this would be a security risk.

Just wondered as I cannot test this scenario.

Of course I guess they could just ban anything running at all from a stick without prior permission I supplose.
