Notepad++ 7.6 autoupdate disable
During installation of 7.6 you cannot de-select autoupdate:(.
If I remove updater folder from installation folder you cannot see “Update Notepad” anymore under ? menu. Is this proper way to disable auto update?
the proper way to disable auto update is:
settings > preferences > misc. >>> uncheck “enable notepad++ auto updater”
Auto Update is “grayed out” by the installer because it’s a dependency of Plugin Admin. You must uncheck Plugin Admin first to change it.
There’s a pitfall the other way around, too: If Auto Update was deselected during a previous installation and you update to 7.6, Plugin Admin is installed without its dependency and won’t show up in the menu. >:-)
This is very sad because we don’t want to update Notepad++ automatically, but we would like to use plugins:(
didn’t you read my post above how to disable auto update ?
YOU CAN DISABLE AUTO UPDATE AND USE PLUGINS AT THE SAME TIME
just go to: settings > preferences > misc.
and uncheck “enable notepad++ auto updater”
i guess i think i know where your missunderstanding regarding auto updates comes from:
you have to install with plugins manager and auto updater.
but the word “auto updater” at the time of installation confuses you.
if it just would be called “updater” it would be clearer, as it is just the program to update np++ and the plugins, the auto update is an extra setting within the misc. options.
