    Question disable Mimio update check?

    Does anyone know how to disable Mimio update check? My teachers get a message to update frequently and until Mimio fixes their install it is not feasible to push out every minor version.
    I have used procmon to try and determine a registry value that could be set with no luck. I will try again, the setting has to be stored somewhere.

    Thank you,

    Disable Mimio update check

    In order to disable the Mimio update check, open up MimioStudio Notebook then click on the Tools Header -> Settings -> Under MimioStudio Settings select Software Update and uncheck the box "Notify me when updates are available" and click OK.

    Thanks for the response @AshishAggarwal
    I am aware of that setting to do it manually, but I want to change 250 laptops. I will need a gpo or a script.

    Thanks,

    My developers just told me that there is an open bug to fix this issue. So even if you uncheck the box you will still be notified of updates. This will be fixed in the next release of MimioStudio.

    @AshishAggarwal
    With your comment about my developers, are you a Mimio rep? Your name looks familiar.

    If you are, a feature request would be to have the option to set the update preference during install time, and a method to programmatically change it later as well.

    also welcome to the forums!

    Thanks

    @AshishAggarwal - in which case thanks for 9.14, it is great to have a GPO deployable package. If your developers are still working on making it more freindly for network installs the above feature of centralised settings deployment (even just for updates to start with) would be a great help. If the settings are stored as registry keys in the right place it should be realitivly easy for the devs or one of us (If we know the keys and possible values) to create an ADM/ADMX template to allow these settings to be configured through group policy on all stations at once.
