But how does Windows know which program to install the add-on in if you press enter on it the portable or installed version?

Hi,

Actually, one can install add-ons into portable NVDA version provided that an installed copy already exists.

Cheers,

Joseph

As far as I know, to install an add-on in a portable version, you can't just press enter on it.  The whole point of a portable program is to run and not make any changes to the system it is running on.  If it told Windows to install add-ons with the extension used, that would be making a change in the registry. 

I'm quite sure that you must use Manage Add-ons in the tools submenu of NVDA when installing to a portable version.

Yes, of course...


If you have an installed version of NVDA, even running a portable
version of NVDA, pressing enter in a *.nvda-addon file, the add-on will
be installed in the portable version.


If you do not have any NVDA version installed, to install a add-on, go
to add-on manager, go to install button and choose the add-on you want
to install...
