That’s new to me. Can you pass the following message to your client:


I’m Joseph, one of the volunteer developers of NVDA. I heard that you’re seeing an odd command line window when NVDA starts.

May I get a debug log from your computer please? To do so, press NVDA+Q, then from Exit NVDA dialog, select the last option (restart with debug logging enabled). Then once NVDA restarts, please move system focus to the command line window and press NVDA+F1 to present the log viewer. Then copy everything from log viewer window and paste it as a private email to me so I can diagnose this.

Greetings everyone and happy 2019.

I’ve recently installed NVDA 2018.4 on a Windows 7 laptop for a client.

It seems when I launch NVDA after this update, it seems to bring up the command prompt for Windows 7 as well.

I’ve changed the shortcut to a different key combination thinking that might fix the problem but no good.

Has anyone else had this same issue and if so what was the trick?
