1.12. "Update Available" (7.x)

Applies to: All products, releases 7.x
If you have a 6.x release, even if the update message references a 7.x release, see "An update is available." (6.x).

When I launch my Palisade software, I get a popup telling me a product update is available. I'd like to update, but I have to wait for my IT department to install it; or maybe I just prefer not to update at this time. Can I suppress the popup?

If you just click "Don't update", the reminder will appear again the next time you run the software.  But you can "snooze" it for about a month by clicking "Remind me in 30 days".

To disable the reminder for yourself alone, download the attached DisablePalisadeUpdateAutoCheck(user).reg and double-click it. To check for updates once, click Help » Check for Software Updates. To re-enable the automatic check, download EnablePalisadeUpdateAutoCheck(user).reg and double-click it.

To disable the reminder for all users on a given computer, follow this procedure:

  1. Close Excel and Project.
  2. Click Start » Run, type regedit and press the Enter key.
  3. To suppress updates for all users on this machine, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\WOW6432Node (if it exists) or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software.
  4. Expand that key, and under it click Palisade.
  5. In the right-hand panel, you should see a value called CheckForUpdatesDisabled — if it's not there, right-click an empty area and select New » String Value to create it.
  6. Double-click CheckForUpdatesDisabled and enter the value True to disable update notices.

Users can still check for updates when they wish, by running the software and clicking Help » Check for Software Updates.

To re-enable the automatic check for updates, change the value to False or simply delete CheckForUpdatesDisabled.
