Latest update to nvda Did not Even Sorta' Work.

I downloaded the update . The fanfare sounded and then
... and then ... Deafening silence

There is nothing remarkable about this computer except it
is amd64 architecture and the previous versions did work well.
It is also new as of February of 2019 and is not wanting for
resources.

I was able to get Narrator going and used a 2018 version
of nvda saved on a thumb drive and installed that for now. There
was 0 audio from this newest version.

Here is information about the computer in question:

I'm sure glad I saved the older nvda file as it restored
functionality for now.

Well, you're still running Windows 10 Version 1809, which is a problem to begin with.  Get yourself updated to 1909 - pronto, and see if that makes a difference.

You would also be very well advised to download and install the HP Support Assistant that's intended for your model series, and set it up and let it run, monitoring your system for all sorts of updates from HP.  Your BIOS/UEFI appears to be out of date, too.

Thank you. I believed the system that always told me I
was up-to-date. I laugh a bit after all, this is an election
year in the US so that's what I get for being gullible. That's
the reason why I printed out some of the systeminfo output.

The path I used to start the upgrade which is chugging
along as I write this was to go to settings and clicking "update
and security"

It wanted for several minutes to keep checking 1809 and
then, for some reason, it suddenly went to update-assistant and
did what an article I had found on line said should happen.

I also thought 1909 was the paid version. So I figured
all the updates would keep increasing the build number after 1809
which would stay the same.

As I send this message, It's on the third progress bar
which is creeping along so it looks like it will take a while to
finish as the documentation warns.

This brings me to a nvda question.

Is there a way to listen to all the messages that are
produced so that one can come back later and hear it all and
check for complaints and or progress statements?
