Hi,

This only works if you can guarantee you'll know what the drive letter will be.  Fine if you're only using one machine, and in which case you'd probably do well to install locally, as you'll gain access to the secure areas if you need them.

That's why I label the pen drive with a 1, and the NVDA exe with a 2.  Never seen it not launch and I use it in my job as an I T Technician.

Regards,
Barry.

True. Ok take this as an example.
e:\nvda\nvda.exe
where e is the letter of your USB flash drive and the rest you can
substitute to your exact location of your portable installation.
Sorry about that. I forget at times there may be not so experienced
users on this list lol!
