Re: Bad boots of NVDA

Roger Stewart
 

How and where would I find an old log file? I thought that file was dumped when nvda is shut down and a new one started the next time nvda is run.

Re: NVDA remote

Luke Davis
 

The solution is probably to email him, or direct him to, a link to the latest NVDA installer, and then after he successfully does that, email him a link to, or the actual file for, the latest version of NVDA remote.

This may well be the root cause for all of this.
Though I'd love to be wrong on this one, I'm almost sure that if you use an NVDA/NVDA Remote with a version other than that that the person you are trying
to help is using, you won't have success controlling their machine.
You'll be able to connect, though. Just what you're reporting. You can connect but you can't control the machine.
Well, I guess we found the problem. What a pity we haven't  found the solution.

Without installing anything, the sound card will play.
 
I don't know what your idea of an external sound card is.  They come in a lot of different shapes and sizes and they aren't shaped like cards you put in a computer.

Is there any way to make a portable copy of NVDA drive an old external

I have a computer that I messed up; deleted the sound drivers.And, of

hardware serial and parallel synthesizers.  If I can get it talking,
maybe I could reinstall the drivers?

Re: Bad boots of NVDA

Chris
 

I suspect this could be a hot key conflict of some sort

 

You could try starting nvda with addons disabled see if that is the cause of the problem

 

Good luck

Yes, I have the extended insert key as an alternate nvda key.

Also, the hotkey to launch NVDA by default is ctrl+alt+n, not NVDA=n.
