Re: How to start NVDA on an USB drive automatically

hurrikennyandopo ...

Hi Christian

That way of doing it stopped back I think in window 8 or was it seven. they said it was a security risk that Microsoft put into place.

It might of even been earlier.

but there are other ways of starting a portable copy of NVDA from a usb stick on another computer like using narrator etc to start nvda.

If you are interested I do have other ways of starting nvda from a usb stick or cd from off my website at will also depend if on a public network there is exe blocking software to stop nvda from runnning.

hope it helps.

Hello all,

As the subject said: I’m looking for a possibility to let a portable version of NVDA run automatically when I insert an USB drive to my computer like the autorun function on CDR.

I’ll get a new computer next week and for setting it up I want to use NVDA. Because I don’t know which letter the USB drive would have, it might be more comfortable if NVDA would run itself after pluggin in the Drive. Would this be possible?


Regards and thanks
