I would also add, and this is from my personal experience. The portable version can access mor things when they rerunning in windows 7, than it can when they are on windows 10. This I think has to do with the greater use of UIA on 10, and hence non installed versions of nvda cannot always get access to the data, unless an old way of doing things already exists of course.

Gene is correct, although I should emphasize that 2018.3 (at least in beta
form) will bring more than improved support for Windows 10. Some of the
other features include automatic braille display detection, announcing
grammar errors in Chrome if exposed by web authors, support for BrailleNote
QT (my work), improved list of languages in NVDA's general settings panel,
and a whole bunch of changes for developers.

Do you have service pack 1 installed on the Windows machine? that is
necessary. As far as I know, NVDA still supports machines withService Pack

How important is it for you to run a current version. While I don't follow
what's new in NVDA closely since I have no need of what has been changed, my
impression is that for awhile, most changes are to keep the program current
and improve accessibility in Windows 10. Therefore, you might do well
running the last version that doesn't require service pack 1 if you can't or
don't want to upgrade the machine.
