Re: Add-On Updater: Is there a way to force it to check for updates?


This is the author of Add-on Updater add-on speaking...
In order to see "check for add-on updates" item, you MUST install Add-on Updater add-on. NVDA does not have a native functionality to check for add-on updates yet, although there is an ongoing discussion as to how to bring this to life in a future release.

It is not there in my copy, should be, but I don't have it here no matter how often I look.

It should be the last item in the Tools menu.

under tools in NVDA, there is no "check for add-on updates."
there is, "manage add-ons," but that is it in this version I am running.

I believe I've asked you this before, and I apologize
for needing to ask again. I have another machine that I just
updated from NVDA 2019.2 to NVDA 2019.3.1. I also intentionally
removed and reinstalled Add-On Updater. All other extant add-ons
are incompatible with 2019.3.1, and I know this.

Add-on Updater did activate yesterday, but before I did
the 2019.3.1 update to NVDA. I am curious to see what it does with
all the incompatible add-ons, but when I invoke NVDA today it is
not coming up to check them. I know there is some mechanism that
keeps it from checking again for a certain period of time since
we've discussed this before.

I have looked in settings and the settings specific to
Add-on Updater, but I'm not seeing a button or other control that
would force it to do a check for updates now. Does such exist, and
I'm missing it? If so, would you please describe where it is and
how to invoke it?
