Re: addon updater


 

Hi,

The root cause was discovered by Lukasz Golonka in August 2021 - it turns out NVDA was assuming the internals of certificate related errors was the same between Python 2 and 3 when in fact it wasn't. Among other things, the old assumption prevented people who have just clean installed Windows without connecting to the Internet from completing the NVDA update check process when connected online. This issue is resolved from NVDA side in upcoming 2021.3 release (alpha phase at the moment); it happens that Add-on Updater assumed the same regarding certificate error internals, so I'll be resolving this from the add-on side this weekend.

Cheers,

Joseph
