Or grabbing the update from the website, installing it as a
portable version, in a folder of your choosing which you can
choose to do at setup, then running it as a portable copy to see

separate folder so they won't overwrite each other. This way you
can test your old add-ons without updating your installed copy

NVDA being incompatible with various addons due to changes, and I
couple synth addons that are several years old, as well as an old
version of the Emoticons addon. I've been pretty anxious about
