Hello!

I wanted to find out if there is a way to disable greenshots update notification. We have created a MSI of greenshot and deployed it to our organization via group policy. However due to a new release we are finding that a lot of people are getting a pop indicating a newer version of greenshot is available.

Is there anyway to disable this via registry or msi setup?

Thanks,

    We decided against building in a lot of complexity and don't use the registry.
    If you are already so far you have build your own MSI, I would really advice you to read this: http://getgreenshot.org/faq/what-is-the-best-way-to-control-greenshots-configuration-at-install-time/

    Place a greenshot-fixed.ini in the installation directory, this file should contain the core section and the update check setting set to 0 in there. There are probably a lot of other things you might want to set, e.g. prevent some plugins to be installed etc.. Best documentation of our greenshot.ini still is the ini itself, every propery is documented (just a one liner).

    If you have problems, let us know so we can direct you a bit better but if we try to explain everything in details there would be no time to develop newer versions. ;-)

    Best wishes,
    Robin
