Hello Gene and list,
yes, this is normal behavior. When you run NVDA from the installer, it
uses the preferences stored in your user profile just like an
installed version would,

I ran the RC version using the continue running option and I find that a lot
of things are being used such as my speech dicgtionary, my speech settings,
and I see an add-on installed in another version being used in the
preferences menu.

Does NVDA automatically import settings from the installed version when you
run the installer?

This may not be new behavior but I never had an installed version on the
machine before.

Hi all,

NVDA 2020.3rc1 has been released. This is a release candidate, and unless
any critical issues are found, this will be identical to the 2020.3 release.
I would encourage everyone to test this release please.

There are improvements to stability and performance, particularly in Office.
eSpeak-NG has been updated, and there are new touchscreen options. We've
also added new emulated system keys in the input gestures dialog.

More highlights and download links can be found in the release blog post at:

Kind regards
