running nvda in admin mode?


Sarah k Alawami
 

Hello. Running xsplit and I talked to one of the devs. They got better accessibility when running nvda in admin mode. How do I run nvda as an administrator again? I forgot.

Using windows 10 over here and the latest snap.


Quentin Christensen
 

Can you get / provide more information about what works better when running in Admin mode?  You really shouldn't run programs as administrator for the most part.  The only thing I'm aware of which would work better if NVDA was running as administrator is when running a portable copy of NVDA and accessing other programs which are running with administrator privileges, or secure Windows screens such as the UAC dialog. 

Is Xsplit running with admin privileges?

You can run a program as administrator by pressing the windows key, typing the name (NVDA for instance) pressing the applications key to bring up the context menu and choosing "Run as administrator"

Hi,


If you have NVDA on the desktop, place the focus there and hit the
context menu, from there arrow down to the run as administrator option
hit it and when prompted press alt-y. Should do the trick.

Tha's how the developer got the accessibility to work, they ran nvda in admin mode.. I'll try and find the email or you can email xsplit and ask them if this can be changed so it works in regular mode, what ever that's called.

I actually don't. Is there a way I can do this from the run dialogue just once then I can revert with just the normal nvda command? I was going to ask on the developers list but I seem to have ben removed. I'm using the latest and gratest snap.

Hi,
If I'm reading this thread correctly, what Sarah might be referring to is a way to launch the portable copy of NVDA with admin privileges (UI Access).
To Sarah: whoever is asking you this question, please tell that person that the only "real" way of running NVDA with admin privileges is installing it.
Cheers,
Joseph

No, I want to run my real copy in admin mode then revert, or maybe I can just keep it there for xsplit broadcaster to run correctly, I dunno.. I could use the portalbe copy but  I will have to keep that updated along wiht the snaps I use.

Hi,

The real copy must be installed in order for it to run in admin mode.

P.S. Won’t respond to other threads at the moment because a fire has erupted in add-ons repositories (see the next post).

Oh? So I can't make a portable version and run its exe in admin mode?  Hmm interesting. Anyone who has xsplit broadcaster besides myself can you try this and see if this works? I can get the support page where you can submit issues as well. They are very good at answering questions Monday to Friday.

Here is the email i got from the xsplit staff re NVDA.

Hi Sarah,
Just an update to your earlier query:
After consulting with some of the devs, it appears that running NVDA as Administrator will enable XSplit Broadcaster to be read properly.
XSplit Gamecaster on the other hand will be read but it will mostly give the wrong information since it runs on a Web UI.

So where do I go from here?

Hi,

In this case, I’d consider this problem partially resolved (the other program that does require admin privileges is Task Manager).

One way to run a portable copy with admin privileges, although not officially endorsed by NV Access, is:

  1. Find out where the executable lives (the path, that is).
  2. Open Run dialog (Windows+R), then type the path to the executable along with the filename.
  3. Press Control+Shift+Enter.

Cheers,

Joseph

So in my case  for example the portable copy path would be d:/apps/nvda/nvda/exe or what ever it's called then do the key stroke? Can I brows to it with my real copy of nvda then  then quite nvda and hit the admin keystroke on my portable exe file? If I have a keystroke to the exe file in my desktop will the keystroke work then?  By the way, I already have it set to run in admin mode via the compatibility wizard. Will that also work?

Take care and have a happy Saturday

Hi,

If you wish to use the file manager method (browsing to the folder where the NVDA executable lives), then you need to first quit NVDA before running another instance (in this case, the portable version) in admin mode.

Is there a reason why you do not wish to install NVDA?

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi,

In this case, I’d consider this problem partially resolved (the other program that does require admin privileges is Task Manager).

One way to run a portable copy with admin privileges, although not officially endorsed by NV Access, is:

  1. Find out where the executable lives (the path, that is).
  2. Open Run dialog (Windows+R), then type the path to the executable along with the filename.
  3. Press Control+Shift+Enter.

Cheers,

Joseph

Here is the email i got from the xsplit staff re NVDA. 

Hi Sarah,
Just an update to your earlier query:
After consulting with some of the devs, it appears that running NVDA as Administrator will enable XSplit Broadcaster to be read properly.
XSplit Gamecaster on the other hand will be read but it will mostly give the wrong information since it runs on a Web UI.

So where do I go from here?

Oh? So I can't make a portable version and run its exe in admin mode?  Hmm interesting. Anyone who has xsplit broadcaster besides myself can you try this and see if this works? I can get the support page where you can submit issues as well. They are very good at answering questions Monday to Friday.

 

Take care

Hi,

The real copy must be installed in order for it to run in admin mode.

P.S. Won’t respond to other threads at the moment because a fire has erupted in add-ons repositories (see the next post).

Cheers,

Joseph

No, I want to run my real copy in admin mode then revert, or maybe I can just keep it there for xsplit broadcaster to run correctly, I dunno.. I could use the portalbe copy but  I will have to keep that updated along wiht the snaps I use.

Hi,
If I'm reading this thread correctly, what Sarah might be referring to is a way to launch the portable copy of NVDA with admin privileges (UI Access).
To Sarah: whoever is asking you this question, please tell that person that the only "real" way of running NVDA with admin privileges is installing it.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi,


To my knowledge, I don't think so, which is why I've always put the shortcut on the desktop.

Hi,


If you have NVDA on the desktop, place the focus there and hit the
context menu, from there arrow down to the run as administrator option
hit it and when prompted press alt-y.  Should do the trick.

No I have a real copy of nvda, but I want to use the portable version  just in case anything brakes my system.

Take care

Hi,
If you wish to use the file manager method (browsing to the folder where the NVDA executable lives), then you need to first quit NVDA before running another instance (in this case, the portable version) in admin mode.
Is there a reason why you do not wish to install NVDA?
Cheers,
Joseph

So in my case  for example the portable copy path would be d:/apps/nvda/nvda/exe or what ever it's called then do the key stroke? Can I brows to it with my real copy of nvda then  then quite nvda and hit the admin keystroke on my portable exe file? If I have a keystroke to the exe file in my desktop will the keystroke work then?  By the way, I already have it set to run in admin mode via the compatibility wizard. Will that also work?
 
Take care and have a happy Saturday
