Re: NVDA failed to install

Howard Traxler

When I do  windows plus R and at the run prompt, type winver, the answer is version 1803 and build 17134 something.  I've tried to find how to update windows but can't find it.  It wants to update my office 2003; and I know there's no update for that; but that's all it shows.  There must be a way to do this?

Hi, Howard,

What version of windows are you using? If it's a much older version, then you'd have to use a much older version of NVDA.

Hope this helps.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA failed to install

Starting to use a computer that has been out of service for two or three years.

Started by removing the NVDA that was on there; might have been version 19.2. Now tried to install the latest; 22.1. Get to the point of "continue button and it says "secure desktop" and locks up. I press escape and it says "NVDA failed".

I tried to find where I could turn off that "secure desktop" But I couldn't find it. Now I don't have NVDA on there and I have to use a portable version on a USB thumb drive.

Ideas anyone? Thanks.
