Overview

Each time Excel is started, Velixo will check to ensure that the latest available version of Velixo is installed. If a newer version is available, Velixo displays a message letting us know:

This makes it easy for individual users to update their installations of Velixo without requiring assistance from system administrators.

Some organizations, however, may prefer to roll out new versions to all users at one time. In that situation, it may be desirable to disable the automatic check for updates.

Resolution

To accomplish this, a system administrator can make a modification to the Windows Registry on each computer.

Download and run the file below to make the necessary modification to the registry.

Alternatively, do the necessary change by hand:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Velixo\Velixo Reports\AutoUpdater]
"version"="9.9.99"
"skip"=dword:00000001

For most systems, it would be expected that the system would need to be restarted for the Registry changes to be applied and reflected in Velixo functionality.
