Sorry, it wasn't as obvious as I thought; that issue wasn't very clear.

I think this should be fixed in the tool, though; trying to walk someone through this can be difficult.

This is what's in the issue, and I quote:

" On my win10 machine, this python console command fixes it if NVDA is run as administrator, but I forgot exactly what it does. It seems to return an error, but I'm not sure how to turn the int back into a HRESULT. However, it doesn't work on the win7 VM:
import comtypes,ctypes;p=comtypes.typeinfo.LoadTypeLibEx(r"c:\windows\syswow64\oleacc.dll");ctypes.windll.oleaut32.RegisterTypeLib(p, ur"c:\windows\syswow64\oleacc.dll", None) "

I'm sorry, but even as a computer geek with decades of experience it was not entirely clear to me under what conditions this worked, or didn't.  And I doubt that most readers here, including myself, have Python console expertise or even a moment's experience, which matters.

Most of the change we think we see in life is due to truths being in and out of favor.
