Re: Update: Defender no longer mistakenly flagging NVDA
Quentin, I just downloaded 2019.3 from the site. After installing I get a message that says, “please register”. This is announced no matter what key I press. The only option I am left with is to press insert q.
If we can't look at ourselves, and ask, why? then where does the learning start?

Subject: [nvda] Update: Defender no longer mistakenly flagging NVDA
Just a quick update - I mentioned on Friday that Microsoft had fixed their Defender definitions. At the time it hadn't filtered down to me at least, although later on Friday it did and everything was fine again. You should no longer have trouble installing NVDA 2019.3rc3 from: https://www.nvaccess.org/post/nvda-2019-3rc3-now-available-for-testing/
If you are still having trouble using eSpeak on a previously installed or setup copy of the RC, you might need to install again, as Defender probably deleted the eSpeak.dll file (the file it was incorrectly flagging as problematic).
Also just to reassure everyone, there never was a problem with eSpeak or NVDA - there never was a trojan or malicious software, it was simply Windows defender incorrectly marking the espeak dll as problematic, even though there was nothing wrong with the file.
