Re: NVDA PORTABLE

You could alternatively try downloading the last version of NVDA which
supported Windows 7 without Service Pack 1.

a) that should get you working on this machine, albeit with an older version
of NVDA, until you can install SP1, then you can upgrade NVDA

b) you can then check for yourself, without needing sighted help, whether SP1
is installed or not.

You can download that version from:

Well, since you can't currently run NVDA on the machine, you'll need a
sighted helper to look for you. They need to start from Control Panel and
then click on "System and Security" and then "System".

Under the heading "Windows edition", it'll say which version of Windows 7
is installed (eg: Home Premium), and underneath that it will say "Service
Pack 1" if it is installed.

Does this Windows 7 machine have Service Pack 1 installed?

I remember that became a requirement for some version of NVDA a while
ago, so it'll still be true for the current version too.
