  • --create-portable: creates a new portable copy and starts it after creation
  • --create-portable-silent: creates a new portable copy and shuts down NVDA

Both parameters depend on the --portable-path parameter, which has to contain the path to the new portable copy.

IN the process, added a new checkbox to the create portable copy dialog which allows for starting the new copy after installation.

Sure:

  1. At @BabbageCom, we deliver USB
    flash drives to our customers containing NVDA along with Nuance
    Vocalizer. However, many customers seem to lack the"skills to
    manually update their USB flash drive to"contain the most recent
    version of NVDA. With the inclusion of this pull request, things
    can get much easier for them and for us if we deliver them a
    simple script which deploys the most recent NVDA version to
    their USB flash drive using these command line parameters.
2. Apart from this, every user will be able to update their
flash drive portable copy with just two command line parameters
added to the launcher, rather than following the procedure of
starting a launcher, navigating to the create portable copy
option, manually filling in the path, creating the copy,
navigating to the new portable copy path, closing the current
copy of NVDA and starting the new one.
  1. These parameters can also be
    used in the case current #4263 code is polished some more.
    Although there are some conserns about automatically updating
    portable copies, we can use the portable-path parameter to have
    the desired portable directory automatically filled in into the
    create portable directory window, for example.

Sorry @feerrenrut, realised that command line parameters should be added to the user guide.
