Re: NVDA 2022.2 Losing Focus

Do you have any old logs from that version of nvda you could email to the devs? Also have you tried any troubleshooting steps besides that one to see  if it really is nvda 22.x?

Hi all,
Recently I installed the new NVDA version, but it started causing problems. For some apps, it announces the windows, but nothing inside it. The process of the app must be killed and the app started again so that it might work. This solution does not work in one particular case described below so I had to downgrade NVDA.
NVDA 2022.2
Windows 10
user account control is active
OpenVPNConnectGUI installed

start open vpn gui
click "yes" on the uac security dialog
the window of the app is no longer accessible.

Downgrading NVDA resolved the issue, so it is the new version. Does anyone had such issues or are they able to replicate this one? I'm asking so that I'm sure before opening an issue on Github.
