Release Notes:

2014.3 Development Test 1 (2014-10-24):

  • Base app updated

2012.3.1 Development Test 1 (2013-04-24): Initial release

Please Note: NVDA Portable is still affected by the issues described here. As such it can't be considered 100% portable, but it is here for those who want it.

I am not so great at keeping it up to date, but if you drop me a message (here in this thread, or any of the ways to contact me via my website are also good) then I will update to the latest official, stable releases (no rc versions) as soon as I can.

Base app updated

I've updated to 2014.3.

I haven't thoroughly tested (have only tested that it works, and changes to settings are remembered) so if anything is wrong that I can fix, please let me know.

Unfortunately NVDA Portable is still affected by the unreleased DLL issue, so still can't be considered truly portable.

Possible Solution and Update

I think I've come up with a solution for the locked DLLs that will be good enough to get it released. I rebuilt the app with the current PA.c Template and wrote custom code to handle it. I've posted it here: https://portableapps.com/node/64196

Ken, I'd be happy to have you maintain this if you think this is release-worthy.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

No Worries

No worries, Ken. It's better than the existing package from the publisher. If we can refine it even further, that'd be cool, too.
