Re: NVDA 2021.2 is now available

Thanks Gene, I thought that might work. I didn't have time to respond before my meeting this morning. For a quick fix to get me up and running this morning, I switched to a different computer with NVDA 2021.1 which worked fine. Fortunately I recently moved all my business files and software to Dropbox and Github so switching in a different computer wasn't a problem.

Hope to talk with you soon.

Dennis

That’s very odd.  Someone can tell you how to find the prior version, I don’t have a link for it. 
 
I don’t think it will automatically update, but it will probably ask if you want to at some point.  To be completely sure it won’t happen, however, you can stop that from happening by disconnecting from the Internet before installing the program and then setting the program not to update before reconnecting.  In the general categatory in preferences, if you tab around, you will find a check box to uncheck to stop automatic checking for updates.  Evidently, if the check box is checked, you will be asked if you want to update when the program runs and unchecking it will avoid that annoyance.
 
While you are waiting to get the earlier version, you may want to uninstall and reinstall the current version.  Something may have gone wrong with the installation and reinstalling the program may solve the problem.

Hello Rui,

Unfortunately I have a very long day ahead of me with 2 important calls
scheduled concerning 2 websites hosted on different cloud servers. We're
trying to sort out a couple of issues with BuddyBoss and LearnDash, and
my computer can no longer even read the names of files I am creating or
renaming. As such the most efficient solution for me will be to
reinstall 2021.1 which was working pretty well for me. My concern even
if I can find 2021.1 is that when I try to install it, that it will
first check and discover a newer version 2021.2 is available and will
install 2021.2 instead of 2021.1.


I now have 1 hour and 10 minutes before my first scheduled call and my
computer for all practical purposes is down.

Thanks for your interest.
