Unattended Install - No Update check

Hi there,

I've an issue with unattended installation of WinSCP 5.1.5.
I use the cmd winscp515setup.exe /SAVEINF="conf.inf" to generate a configuration file.
During the manual setup process, I disable auto updates :

Then I use the following script for silent installation :

"%~dp0winscp515setup.exe"  /VERYSILENT /NORESTART /LOADINF="%~dp0conf.inf" /NOCANDY /LOG="C:\install\Logs\winscp.txt"    

The program is deployed to end users with Miscrofot SCCM 2007.
When I check the settings on users computers, the auto update setting is not disabled :

I checked in the registry, in noticed that there are keys related to updates settings in [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2\Configuration\Interface\Updates]
but I don't get how to set the value of the keys to disable autou pdates.
How can I fix that ?
How can I disable updates check, and check for beta version for all users when installing ?

Thanks in advance,

Yours faithfully, mygwl

Thanks for your post.

This issue is being tracked already:
https://winscp.net/tracker/show_bug.cgi?id=758

Meanwhile, you can turn off the update check by setting following registry key:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2\Configuration\Interface\Updates]
"Period"=dword:00000000

Sorry, but HKEY_CURRENT_USER isn't for all users.
You have to change the program to read HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, so it's global for all users.

You can set a default for all users this way:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2]
"DefaultUpdatesPeriod"=dword:00000000
