Add a registry so that these would be removed from the Add or Remove Programs list.

 

Uninstall:

It is a simple uninstall with the following command line. All the components will be uninstalled except for the components that has dependencies with other programs. And the command line would be

vs_premium.exe /uninstall /quiet /silent /noweb /norestart.

  • Hi
    Did you find anyway to disable the updates within Visual Studio 2012?
    Thanks - marge_simpson 7 years ago
  • you cannot disable them as it is user specific. I actually went to the Microsoft site and tried to disable them. When you launch it creates the registry. I did try to work on that also but no luck. - Sidhugadu 7 years ago
  • Hi,

    Correct..everytime you launch the shortcut it creates the registry that enables the autoupdate. Even if you have included the registry to untick the Autoupdate option in the package, the shortcut overwrites that registry and enables the autoupdate feature.

    However I tried the following workaround and it solved the issue for me..

    1. Write a vbscript that launches the exe responsible for launching the shortcut.

    2. In the same vbscript also include the logic of wring the registry that disables (untick) the auto update option in every 5 seconds in a recursive loop. [You can find this registry via picture taker, Installwrite or any third party tool].

    3. Place this vbs in the same location as that of the main exe.

    4. Create a dummy shortcut (.lnk) file that point to this vbs and assign the same icon to this dummy shortcut as that of the main shortcut.

    5. Delete the main shortcut and place this dummy shortcut in the place of the main shortcut.

    Now everytime the user launches the shortcut , it will launch the vbs which instead will first launch the main appliction and in the mean while recursively also write to the registry to disable the auto update feature of the shortcut.

    Of course there is always an option of running the vbs via taskscheduler as well. You will have to figure out the command that would run the script which would disable the auto update feature in every user in every 5-10 seconds.

    Hope this helps. - debashis sharma 7 years ago
  • hi, my post could help people resolvie this issue.. - debashis sharma 7 years ago
  • I did not go through all this trouble as it is being used by developers they already have the privileges to install anything. I just let them have it. - Sidhugadu 7 years ago
  • You need to edit all the files in this location.
    "c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\Profiles"

    Use a script to find and replace AutomaticallyCheckForUpdates2"">True to AutomaticallyCheckForUpdates2"">False

    Log on with a new user and you will see the updates are disabled.

    So the logic flow is.
    1. Install program with script.
    2. Edit the files
    3. Launch for the first time. - WarrenHeald 7 years ago
