Re: Editing an NVDA Add-On Manifest file as a Temporary Workaround #adminnotice

For those who want to check add-on compatibility, the best way might be to have a portable version of NVDA on the machine and see if the add-ons work. 

Those who know more about add-ons may want to comment but perhaps testing is the most reliable and easiest method.

If not is there any instruction on how to change the last tested date of a non-installed .nvda-addon file?

1. Email the add-on author and ask when it's going to be updated.

2. Rename the add-on by changing the .nvda-addon extension to .zip.

3. Unzip it.

4. Change the manifest.

5. Re-zip it.

6. Rename it from .zip to .nvda-addon.

7. Install it.

Bonus instruction: be wise, and stop after step 1.
