  1. Go to NVDA Menu>Tools>Create Portable Copy...

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Fixed in changeset:f5d2047bf6d49a5e5dec0b4fe16ddfeec5424b29. The directory is no longer set to the random location of 'e:', instead its left blank. When pressing continue, a message box is shown if the directory is still blank, or the drive does not exist.
