There are options in the settings of each program to disable updating or change the interval. If you only use a single installation, change the value to “0” and updating will be disabled.
If deploying installation across a network, the registration database also allows disabling of updating. This is done by changing the value of the key HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMatchWareMediator 8.0 ProAutoUpdateCheckInterval (REG_DWORD) to “0” – this can be done through group policies.
(The example shows Mediator 8.0 paths – check your installation to see the path including version number).
