locked Re: Making Portable NVDA
You can't. Well, you can if you already have access to the machine andtoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
install some third party software on it and make a script on your USB
drive, but that doesn't solve your problem. The easiest thing, I think,
would be to name your drive with a number, so in the volume label you'd
type something like 1nvda or whatever. Then to run it, you'd do the
1. insert drive into computer, wait for the noise that tells you it was
2. Hit windows-e to get into file explorer.
3. Hit 1 to get to your drive.
4. Hit enter to get into your drive.
At this point, you want to set up the contents of the drive so you have
a numbered file, like 1.bat. Have that file run NVDA. So when you're in
that drive, hit 1 and hit enter again, and you should have NVDA running.
So for example, suppose on your machine, the drive is e:. You make a
portable copy of NVDA at e:\nvda. Label e: as 1nvda or whatever, then go
into the drive. Make a file called 1.bat with text like so.
Then, slap the drive into a new machine, hit win-e, 1, enter, 1, enter.
NVDA should run.
