Does anyone have any idea how I can change the Nero update to check monthly.

Set a fixed update check interval
       0 = Never
       1 = Daily
       2 = Weekly
       3 = Monthly

I have no Idea where i can add this , so it will check for monthly updates.I dont see any registries for checkInterval . Please help

Thanks in advance

Use any capturing tools like PictureTaker, Incontrol, IntallRite, PrismCapture, SysTracer etc to see exactly where it is getting updated..

Launch the update window.

Pre-Capture

Select "Monthly" option

Post-Capture..

======================================
Nero Update - Administrator's reference
======================================

Policies
--------

Nero Update can be configured by policies for use in
administrated network environments.

[1] These policies are set through several registry keys
located under [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Policies/Nero/Agent].


Using a network share for Nero Update
------------------------------------
Administrators can get a zipped update repository that, when
unzipped on a network share, can be used to update all clients
running NeroUpdate automatically.
To reference the local network share instead of the global
Nero update server simply create the following string value
in the Windows registry in the above mentioned registry key [1].

UpdateRepository <path to network share>

The path can either be a mapped drive with drive letter assignment or
an UNC path to a share on a server. The share has to be accessible
by all clients using it.

Please note: After changing the repository Nero Update has to be
(re-)started to recognize the change!


Restricting user (client) access to Nero Update
----------------------------------------------
The following values can be additionally created to restrict access
to NeroUpdate on a computer (e.g. by domain policies):

Name   Type  Description
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
CheckInterval REG_DWORD Set a fixed update check interval
       0 = Never
       1 = Daily
       2 = Weekly
       3 = Monthly
DenyCheck  REG_SZ  Deny manual check for updates if present
DenyDownload REG_SZ  Deny update downloads if present
DenyInstall  REG_SZ  Deny update installations if present
DenyUI   REG_SZ  Prohibit Nero Update UI completely
NoLocalCache REG_SZ  Do not cache update installations locally

  • Did you try this method?
  • I dont see Nero under [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Policies/Nero/Agent].

    How do I apply the below?

    CheckInterval REG_DWORD Set a fixed update check interval
    0 = Never
    1 = Daily
    2 = Weekly
    3 = Monthly
    DenyCheck REG_SZ Deny manual check for updates if present
    DenyDownload REG_SZ Deny update downloads if present
    DenyInstall REG_SZ Deny update installations if present
    DenyUI REG_SZ Prohibit Nero Update UI completely
    NoLocalCache REG_SZ Do not cache update installations locally

    Please guide .. thanks
  • You have to create it..
  • It did not work.. I tried manually creating it.
  • Did you check after restrating the machine as you are applying through policy..
  • Yes I did.
  • 100% It is working..
  • It worked .. thanks.

you can use something like http://www.itninja.com/link/regshot-is-an-open-source-lgpl-registry-compare-utility-1 to look at registry.


Also you can make the change and search the drive by todays date, sort by time and see what file(s) changed at the time.

Hi , I tried the the snapshot method, I was not able to get registry.I created the MSI though for that changes of update. When I tried to install that msi , it did not show me the changes at the nero control center, the default remained. Is the update taking place at the website itself. Because I did not see any registry changes too, for the Check Interval.

 

this is the log through regshot, please tel me if I am missing something
