How to disable automatically check for updates

Post by heikkuri » Sat Sep 19, 2020 11:05 am

Hi,

In enterprise environment the automatic update checks and announcements are not a good thing.
Users do not have admin access to there PCs so all updates must go through IT folks.
Is there an option to disable "automatically check for updates" feature.
I know how to do it manually from more - about.
Some option during the driver installation, perhaps?

The new silent installation method with xml file is a good improvement. I like it a lot.
Also the 3Dconnection Admin Guide PDF file is excellent.

Thanks

Uninstall 3DxWare 10 (the settings will be preserved) and re-run the installer: expand the "Advanced Settings" section and clear (untick) the option "Automatically check for updates".

Go to 3Dconnexion Properties, and go to 3Dconnexion Viewer:
