Latest NVDA Alpha Snapshot and Add-on Updater


Hi. I'm posting this to a few lists since I'm not sure where it belongs. I'm using the latest alpha snapshot of NVDA, alpha-19441,855bf207, with Add-on Updater version 19.11, which I believe is also the latest version. For some reason, Add-on Updater doesn't seem to be working with this version for me. NVDA says it's enabled in the Add-ons Manager dialog, but I can't check for add-on updates or see the settings. NVDA also plays an error tone when it starts, and at least some of the errors in the log mention Add-on Updater. I'm attaching an NVDA log file I saved a couple days ago that I think shows the problem. Is anyone else having this problem? Thanks.
