Hmmm, you can do this by listening to what the version YYMM info is. Another method is using Resource Monitor add-on – if you’ve got that add-on, press NVDA+Shift+number row 6, and it’ll tell you which Windows version you are using.

I use the add on updater.
How do I retrieve the build info using winver?
What method did you use to attempt to install this? If it is add-on Updater, chances are that it might be something I need to investigate from that add-on; if it is downloading the add-on from community add-ons website, that gives me a reason to investigate more.
The most likely explanation might be that you might be running 1803, which may not be the case. Can you tell me exactly which build of Windows 10 you’ve got? You can check it by opening Start menu, typing “winver” (without quotes) to search box and pressing Enter. If the build is 17134, this will explain why because Windows 10 App Essentials requires build 17763 or later.
Unfortunately this new version of the add on still gives me an error saying not compatible with this version of windows. I am using 1903 and nvda February 1st.
Windows 10 App Essentials 19.11.2 is now available. This release adds support for announcing results of tile rearrangements – after arranging Action Center quick actions or Start menu tiles, NVDA will announce new item position or item information. As always, the new update is available via community add-ons website or via Add-on Updater.
IMPORTANT: if you are using Windows 10 Version 1809 (October 2018 Update), please read the following to the end:
Support for Version 1809 from Windows 10 App Essentials is coming to a close. Depending on which channel you are subscribed to and NVDA version you’ve got:
