Hello Everyone,

I have to deploy VLC Media Player 1.1.11 on whole environment. I have disabled "Privacy and Network Policies", but now also need to disable "Check for Updates" under Help menu.

I tried to find out the solution everywhere but could not find anything. Please help if anyone has done this.

Thanks,
Dinesh Kashyap

If you can't find where that is stored, load up Process Monitor and make the change while doing a trace. There's a lot of stuff to dig through, but you'll find where the file/reg key with that change is stored.

As VBScab mention there is an entry in Package KB

"Start VLC witout privacy and update notification?"

1. download VLC as zip-file, unpack to a folder
2. create a msi with a shortcut

Use this shortcut description:

C:\Programme\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe "--no-qt-privacy-ask" "--no-qt-updates-notif"

We did it a while ago , we took a setup capture of the exe.

Implemented the step mentioned by pjgeutjens and PackageExpert as follow:

i) Placed i guess the three files in %appdata%\vlc of all the existing user and default one too.

2) Created the shortcut as follow:

C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe "--no-qt-privacy-ask" "--no-qt-updates-notif"

Thank you all for your response. I'm able to find the "Privacy and Network Policies" issue which comes only once when application is lunches first time. But I have to disbale/hide "Check For Updates" under Help menu aslo, so that no once can update the software manually.

Thanks,

As an alternative, block the update site on your firewall.

Have you tried searching Vendor Forums?
