Re: Portable copy

Ron Canazzi

Hi Group,

Well since I am receiving conflicting information (from other lists) concerning Thunderbird accessibility, I installed a portable version of 102.1.1 and told it to check for updates.  When the updates are downloaded and installed, I can see what if any accessibility issues remain or have been addressed.  When I am sure that they all if they ever are, then I will install the permanent version to my system.
As of now 102.1.1 still has issues with the status bar. We shall see.

When I am running the portable version I want not to check for updates, I set it not to do so in the general settings, just as you can in the installed version.  I also uncheck the check box not to notify me of updates at startup.  I am never asked.

As installed and portable copies are identical, portable copies DO support updating to a newer version of themselves.
This being the case, is there a way to create a .bat file with a command line invocation of NVDA that would tell it not to check for updates.  I haven't needed to create archival portables for some time, but when I do I don't even want them to ask me about updating them.  The main reason, besides needing NVDA briefly on a machine where I choose not to install it, that I create portable copies is to "freeze that version in time."
