Disable Auto Update via GPO

Post by tuckerv77 » Tue Oct 13, 2015 7:19 pm

Hello All,

Looking for a way to disable auto update via GPO. We deployed PDF XChange Editor 5.5 build 313.1 as part of PDF XChange Pro 2012. Is there simply a registry setting or config file that I can either edit or change so that it will disable the auto updater?

Thanks in advance,

Tucker

Hi Tucker,

Thanks for the post - this can be set using the following registry keys (renamed to *.txt).

Update: manually running that REG files works fine to install them but I am trying to add the keys through GPO and it is not creating them. Any suggestions?

Hello tuckerv77,

Is there a way for you to apply a "run once" registry change that is applied on the next user log in? There should be options in your distribution/management software that should allow you to do so.

Regards,
Stefan

Hi tuckerv77,

absolutely you should be able to apply the reg changes using a GPO. Here is an example of how one might do it.

Let me know how this goes for you?
