I'd be happy to help you out with the batch process option - please send me an email. Thank you.


Hi Volker,

Not sure if you've received my email but that seems to go off track. I tried my luck in the discussion board but unable to reply thru the browser, IE throwing java error.

While it seems to work fine in XP, but in Vista, the Autoupdate dialog box still comes up. I find that if you put the following registry keys, the dialog box didn't come up again. Can you please clarify this if this is the case.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AppDataLow\Software\AutoDesk\Design Review\Settings\AutoUpdate

CheckInterval REG_DWORD 0
DoNotShowAgain REG_DWORD 1 <- v.important
InitialCheck REG_DWORD 1

If this is true, almost all of the system administrators / packagers would agree that the most annoying thing is to have settings in HKCU, which means that we have to edit the MSI itself to fix up things that should not be appear in corporate environment before we deploy to the production. I was wondering if you can revisit this section in your next release and try to keep corporate environment in mind for mass deployment. E.g. Disable AutoUpdate, Disable dialog box popup etc.

Your consideration is very much appreciated.
