Re: strange behavior with add on updater

Yes when he says manual install, he just means going to the add ons list and selecting get add ons, go to the development add ons, download the latest one and then use your browsers files display for downloads, and run the download. You can do this for every version of nvda you have portable or installed once you download it once of course.

Thank you Joseph. It is a very handy tool and I wouldn't be without it.

And the solution has been revealed in the form of Revision A for August 25th snapshot, with the bug caused by a wxPython attribute that isn't available in NVDA 2018.2.1. I'm about to upload August 27th snapshot that not only includes a fix for this (for those who haven't applied revision A), but also will check add-on checkboxes by default so you can update add-ons.
Note that the new build will require manual install for those using August 25th build (not revision A).

Hello Andy. I had the same issue Tony reported and am glad it installed for you. This is the first time I have had any trouble. No doubt all will be revealed.

Hi Tony. I was about to write to the list on the same subject. At
first I wondered if there was some kind of bug when the notification
appeared several hours apart but I am convinced it isn't a bug.

Looking forward to the answer and a possible remedy.

The latest version of the add on updater came out yesterday. When I
check the option to install it, the only button that shows up is a
close button. I went through the dialog box, and the only things that
are in there are the checkbox to select the update and the close button.
What's up with that, where's the install button for the darn thing?
Slightly perplexed.
