Disable InstallAware X12 to automatically check for updates

Postby mwilner » Thu Sep 17, 2020 3:18 pm

Hello,
I installed IA X12 but didn't see the option to disable the setup from enabling the check for updates automatically the system or IA starts.
Where can I disable this check so that I don't get the popup every time the app is used or the PC is started.
I am using IA on a build PC that has no physical attendance to click ok each time the app tries to start and check for an update.

Best regards,
Manfred Wilner

You may disable or re-enable automatic update checking at any time.

For what concerns IA X12 specifically and if you did a PER-MACHINE installation, from command line run:

Code: Select all

C:\ProgramData\{E7D6987C-A0F4-4A2E-AF32-553D9838CF66}\myahew.exe /updatesetup

while if you did a PER-USER installation:

Code: Select all

C:\Users\Francesco\AppData\Local\{E7D6987C-A0F4-4A2E-AF32-553D9838CF66}\myahew.exe /updatesetup

The above command will launch the "InstallAware X12 update wizard" in the System Tray. From there select the IA Icon, and then apply your settings.
