Re: Silent Install

Update: I've found that the uninstaller can be run silently with the '/S' and '/SD' switches (case sensitive).

The uninstaller is based on Nullsoft which has the following commands: http://www.silentinstall.org/nsis


Re: I Can't get the latest version of NVDA to install

What happens if you use the install option when the portable version is running.  I don't know how you get to it in the new interface.  I don't run a version with that interface, though I'd like to to see what its like, but I don't have a machine that can run it as my machines are set up now. 
 
At any rate, in the old interface, the option is in the tools menu.  If you can successfully run the install option, you will have an installed copy.

I think that Interesting is one word for it.  Smile
 
I’ll tell you what I just did.  I created a portible copy of NVDA with a working laptop and put it on a thumb drive.  Then I put it in to a folder on the not working right, Dell.  Now I finally have NVDA on the Dell PC plus I can use the NVDA portible thumb drive anywhere.
 
Guess there’s more than one way to get the job done.  Its just so very weird...

I don't know anything about user profiles so I don't know if that is the problem.  But what I find interesting is that you don't even get to the point where NVDA is running for the talking install.  That is actually the portable version running, though you haven't yet approved the license and told it whether you want to keep running it, create a portable version, or install.  I wonder if a user profile would matter at such an early stage where it is running as a portable version to be used as a talking installer.  I don't have the technical knowledge to assess that question but, having said that, it doesn't sound plausible to me.  Maybe some others with enough technical knowledge to make a reasonable guess about the situation will comment further on this interesting problem.

    Hi all,

I just got off the phone with the MS Disability Desk.  They are offering me
to options to get NVDA installed on my Dell laptop.  Change user profiles or
do a clean install.  So, unless someone tells me otherwise, I will just do
without NVDA on this particular machine for a few months.  Later, I will
consider a fresh install of Windows.  But, I got burned twice before when MS
changed user profiles on two of my PC's so I do not think I want to try for
a third time.  I would try it myself but it is a bit over my head...maybe a
lot over when it comes to know what and how to move everything over to the
new user profile.

Again, I am extremely grateful for so many people joining in to work toward
a solution.  And, this Dell will eventually get a fresh install.

All, have an awesome night,,

James B

First, the good news.  My Dell laptop made it through the Windows10 repair
and is snappier than ever.

Now, the bad.  I still can't get NVDA to install.

The first MS tech support person that I spoke with earlier today said that
she could create another user profile and install NVDA and I wouldn't need
to switch profiles.  Actually, I basically do not even understand  very much
about profiles but, I am about to call the MS  Disability Desk for the third
time today and try one more time for installing NVDA.

I'll post more information here later because so many of you spent so much
time on this.

Regards,

James B

I use m-dashes a lot and I use the ALT+0151 and it inserts them everywhere I've tried ... Notepad, Word, emails, this email — for example.

If the Alt number pad keystroke isn't workikng for you do you have your num lock key on and are you typing it on the separate number pad rather than the number row above the letters? It does need to be typed on the number pad and with num lock active.

also, like with any Alt shortcut, you do need to leave the ALT key pressed down while typing 0, 1, 5, and 1 in turn. I'd be surprised if it isn't working unless it is something specific to the program you're typing in.

Hope that helps :)

Re: Silent Install

It's strange - it's not a full interactive installer but a small window with a loading bar and that message appears. Ideally I'd like the software to show nothing at all and install completely in the background.

I don’t know if any dialog pops up or not when I do a silent install

But that switch shouldn’t allow any interaction whilst installing, its always worked for me

Whenever I try to run with that switch, a setup windows pops up saying 'Please wait while NVDA is being installed'.

I would also like to say that although not directly nvda related, I can certainly say that I always install the Klite codec pack on any machine as it seems to cope with almost any kind of content a media player or browser can throw at it. I got fed up with hardly accessible pop ups etc telling me to install this or that to play this content.
It makes life a whole lot less annoying.

Re: Autorun for the portable version?

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

Officially due to security constraints in windows autorun of any old software from portable media is not allowed, but I'm sure you realise this. In any case it would most certainly not work everywhere as most communal computers are locked down solid. I only use the portable version if I cannot get one to install as in Windows 10 access to many items is not possible making it less useful than an installed version.

That may be the case, but it makes a lot more sense to learn how to search the group archives to find content you know has been discussed. It's not hard to do, either, and generally proves to be a lot quicker if you teach yourself how to do it and know that something has been discussed.

Re: Silent Install

Luke Thomson
 

It means that the installer should run silently in the background - so no windows popping up or any user interaction with the installer. It's very useful when deploying applications to managed machines as it prevents the user from interacting with the installation and potentially causing issues.


Re: Silent Install

Luke Thomson
 

To clarify - I don't use any apostrophes when running the command, that was just to format my post.

Whenever I try to run with that switch, a setup windows pops up saying 'Please wait while NVDA is being installed'.

Actually I thought it was control l. I use that to get to the address bar of most browsers now.

You can only use the run command if you know the letter of the drive that is the flash drive.  On an unfamiliar computer, you won't know.  Once you find out, unless it changes, you can use the run command but you need to know how to run NVDA in a method such as I described unless you are always using a computer you definitely know the letter on.

hi

 

There used to be able to do it but i think that stopped back in windows 7.

 

There are other ways of starting nvda from a USB stick or Cd on another persons computer.

 

Which version of windows are you running?

 

I do have some tutorials on starting nvda from a USB stick or Cd on my website if you are interested they are on the nvda audio tutorials page at http://accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20audio%20tutorials.html

When you get there jump down by headings until you get to the sections mentioning USB or CD.

 

I do have one written up not posted but it covered making a portable version of NVDA then starting it on windows 10. At the time it is nvda 2019.1 and version 1809 of Windows.

 

But you could try the following also on your computer but will not work on log on screen.

 If you put the portable contents of nvda on to a USB stick unplug it from your computer then plug it back in.

 

then press the windows key + letter R and in the run dialogue box type E:nvda then press the enter key and then it should start up.

 

To make sure it is that version when i had it running on the usb stick i changed the voice from the other one that i was using.

 

not sure if it works on earlier versions of Windows that way I do not think it did.

 

that one might get posted in the next day or so?

Re: I Can't get the latest version of NVDA to install

Gene
 

I don't know anything about user profiles so I don't know if that is the problem.  But what I find interesting is that you don't even get to the point where NVDA is running for the talking install.  That is actually the portable version running, though you haven't yet approved the license and told it whether you want to keep running it, create a portable version, or install.  I wonder if a user profile would matter at such an early stage where it is running as a portable version to be used as a talking installer.  I don't have the technical knowledge to assess that question but, having said that, it doesn't sound plausible to me.  Maybe some others with enough technical knowledge to make a reasonable guess about the situation will comment further on this interesting problem.

    Hi all,

I just got off the phone with the MS Disability Desk.  They are offering me
to options to get NVDA installed on my Dell laptop.  Change user profiles or
do a clean install.  So, unless someone tells me otherwise, I will just do
without NVDA on this particular machine for a few months.  Later, I will
consider a fresh install of Windows.  But, I got burned twice before when MS
changed user profiles on two of my PC's so I do not think I want to try for
a third time.  I would try it myself but it is a bit over my head...maybe a
lot over when it comes to know what and how to move everything over to the
new user profile.

Again, I am extremely grateful for so many people joining in to work toward
a solution.  And, this Dell will eventually get a fresh install.

All, have an awesome night,,

James B

First, the good news.  My Dell laptop made it through the Windows10 repair
and is snappier than ever.

Now, the bad.  I still can't get NVDA to install.

The first MS tech support person that I spoke with earlier today said that
she could create another user profile and install NVDA and I wouldn't need
to switch profiles.  Actually, I basically do not even understand  very much
about profiles but, I am about to call the MS  Disability Desk for the third
time today and try one more time for installing NVDA.

I'll post more information here later because so many of you spent so much
time on this.

Re: chrome

Gene
 

Some people may be interested in this.  It is somewhat minutia, but the kind of minutia that may interest some people.
 
In Internet Explorer, the open dialog, control o or control l, is separate from the address bar.  In Chrome and firefox, there is no open dialog and the address bar, f6 control d, control l, is the same.  In other words, you get to the same place with all these commands.  But in Internet Explorer, control d and f6 take you to the address bar.  Control o or control l take you to the open dialog, where you don't see the address of the page you are on.  You have to use f6 or control d to see the page in the address bar.

Hi list,

 

I am using win 7 with nvda and latest chrome.

When I use I e and firefox, I can press f6 and have the address bar highlighted so I can copy and paste it.

When I press f6  in chrome, I land on various things but not the address bar of the current page.

How do I do this.

Re: Autorun for the portable version?

Judy Jones <sonshines59@...>
 

Yes, Gene, that does make sense, and my thinking was along the same as yours, that the drive may be an E drive.  On my own computer, depending on the USB port I use, I have had labels of E, F, or G.

 

Thanks again.

Hi

 

Since you say you might be floating from pc to pc where most computers have a c: drive hard drive d: drive usually a dvd burner it is usually the E drive when plugged i.

 

The easiest way is either change the letter each time until it starts.

 

if you do not know start up narrator then locate the usb drive then locate the nvda.exe file on the usb stick then press the enter key then close down  narrator.

 

The other way i like doing it is labeling the usb stick. for example qqq then have the nvda files put onto the usb stick.

 

but doing it that way also depends how they have it setup. Like when you press the windows key + letter E then file explorer comes up if it gives you a list of folders and shows all of your drives then it is a matter of just pressing the letter Q it will take you to the usb stick press the enter key now you are inside of the usb stick then press the letter N and it should land on the nvda.exe file then press the enter key and it should start up.

 

If it is the other screen I can not think what it is called quick access where it shows your latest files etc then you will need to shift/ tab once it will put you in a tree view press the letter T for this pc then press the enter key I can not remember if you have to tab once then press the letter Q it should land you on the usb stick press the enter key then press the letter N for the nvda.exe file then press the enter key and you will be up and running.

 

any how there are different ways but the narrator one would be the best for a new user to get started with nvda on  a totally new machine.

You can only use the run command if you know the letter of the drive that is the flash drive.  On an unfamiliar computer, you won't know.  Once you find out, unless it changes, you can use the run command but you need to know how to run NVDA in a method such as I described unless you are always using a computer you definitely know the letter on.

Gene, this is perfect.  Thanks so much.  Just what I was looking for.  I could do the run command from a system requiring no speech for that.

 

I am saving this e-mail for my records.

 

Thanks so much.

hi

 

There used to be able to do it but i think that stopped back in windows 7.

 

There are other ways of starting nvda from a USB stick or Cd on another persons computer.

 

Which version of windows are you running?

 

I do have some tutorials on starting nvda from a USB stick or Cd on my website if you are interested they are on the nvda audio tutorials page at http://accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20audio%20tutorials.html

When you get there jump down by headings until you get to the sections mentioning USB or CD.

 

I do have one written up not posted but it covered making a portable version of NVDA then starting it on windows 10. At the time it is nvda 2019.1 and version 1809 of Windows.

 

But you could try the following also on your computer but will not work on log on screen.

 If you put the portable contents of nvda on to a USB stick unplug it from your computer then plug it back in.

 

then press the windows key + letter R and in the run dialogue box type E:nvda then press the enter key and then it should start up.

 

To make sure it is that version when i had it running on the usb stick i changed the voice from the other one that i was using.

 

not sure if it works on earlier versions of Windows that way I do not think it did.

 

that one might get posted in the next day or so?

I now have the portable version on a thumb drive, but is it possible to get NVDA to start when inserting the drive?  If so, how?

 

Thanks again.

Re: Autorun for the portable version?

Hi


Since you say you might be floating from pc to pc where most computers have a c: drive hard drive d: drive usually a dvd burner it is usually the E drive when plugged i.


The easiest way is either change the letter each time until it starts.


if you do not know start up narrator then locate the usb drive then locate the nvda.exe file on the usb stick then press the enter key then close down  narrator.


The other way i like doing it is labeling the usb stick. for example qqq then have the nvda files put onto the usb stick.


but doing it that way also depends how they have it setup. Like when you press the windows key + letter E then file explorer comes up if it gives you a list of folders and shows all of your drives then it is a matter of just pressing the letter Q it will take you to the usb stick press the enter key now you are inside of the usb stick then press the letter N and it should land on the nvda.exe file then press the enter key and it should start up.
