Re: Empty folders in Window Explorer, issues # 3152 and # 5759


To avoid overriding previously imported appModules, the appModules should import one on top of the other rather than from nvdaBuiltins.appModules.

I mean in win10app add-on as well as in any add-on/module overriding explorer:
from appModules.explorer import *
rather than
from nvdaBuiltin.appModules.explorer import *

I haven't tested yet but I think it should work:
- nvdaBuiltin.appModules contains appModules originally embedded by NVDA
- appModules contains the appModules available at runtime, i.e. appModules from add-ons may have overridden NVDA's ones.

It it is confirmed it can work this way, I will update Outlook extended add-on accordingly to allow other third party Outlook enhancements.

Thanks, indeed that is the problem. WinTenApps must be disabled for it
to load correctly. I had a similar problem with Mozilla and the
Developer Toolkit.
