Re: I've really gotten myself into a pickle.

This is not how you do it to trigger this bug.
You need to open nvda.exe properties, the target of the shortcut, not the shortcut.

I just opened the shortcut properties, went to compatibility and checked "run as administrator".  When I OK'd the change and went to run NVDA, I got the UAC dialog as expected, I pressed ALT+Y to accept it, and the dialog disappeared and NVDA started as it should.
Can Tyler or someone who can repro this please send me a log or something with more information?
I'm using NVDA 2022.2beta3 installed on Windows 11 (64-bit) Version: 21H2 (2009), Build: 22000.778

No, this is literally a loop. I’m not about to try to reproduce this
as getting out of it was a mess! That was a very, very nasty bug.
And for anyone that has User Account Control on and does this, just,
don’t! Trust me! Don’t! Not sure if I said this, but thank you to
everyone on the Facebook group and on here who helped me. I think
I’m going to go to bed, and crash, and hope that I am coherent for
class tomorrow.

Are you sure its a loop and not just multiple bits of the same software
asking for permission? I had that even on Windows 7 which is why,
and I know
plenty of people disagree with this, I turned it off.
 I think after about 4 allows it did work and I hastily turned the
thing off. Windows 11, however might well have a new behaviour here.
From what I see the only  way out is safe mode and a sighted person,
depending on how useful Narrator is in that mode.
Might be an idea to talk to Microsoft's accessibility help line though.

I can’t do that. There is no option in settings to start up at start
up. I
already looked. I even tried shutting down nvda, only to have it
come up
when I hit no with narrator. At least this fake runtime thing. I
even force
reboot it and it no and this fake runtime thing came up and is still

I have no idea if this will help, but even when UAC comes up, you
can go
into the NVDA menu.  You could try telling it not to run
automatically at
boot up or at the login screen.  Set all automatic run settings in that
;part of the dialog to no, reboot, and see what happens.

Hello to all. I had an ad don which was not working so I decided to
try and
start nvda with admin privileges. Bad move. Now UAC keeps asking me
if I
want to make change's. No matter if I hit yes, no, restart my system, I
cannot get this dialogue to go away. I really don't know what to do now.
I have a new computer running windows 11 home so I took my portable
copy and
installed nvda from there. All went well until I tried to use resource
monitor. It didn't work, no keys worked so I figured to try this and
now I
am in trouble. Is there no way I can get this dialogue to go away,
or I can
in8install nvda somehow outside of windows? I don't want to reformat
as I
just got this thing set up. I can't even do a system restore as this
screen is taking over my system and will not go away. Help? I can't
even run
any diagnostics or anything. I guess I found a disadvantage to UAC.
I like
it but right now I am hating it as it won't go away. You would think it
would but no.
