Hello everybody,

is there a possiblity to have an automated, scripted installation (as was possible with OOo and LibO 3.3) that includes the disabling of the automated check for updates? As I have to run Windows in a school environment that always creates the same state of installation (including all of windows) after a reboot the checking for updates (of any program) normally is a nuisance to our everyday work.

There used to be just that possibility with the old msi-file. It worked like this:

--- script content on START /WAIT msiexec /qr /norestart /i %cd%\LibO\libreoffice33.msi REGISTER_NO_MSO_TYPES=1 CREATEDESKTOPLINK=0 COMPANYNAME="MySchool" USERNAME="" ISCHECKFORPRODUCTUPDATE=0 ADDLOCAL=ALL REMOVE=gm_o_Quickstart --- script content off

Do these parameters still work?

Cheers qwertz42

fdo#46508 has status RESOLVED FIXED. The variable ISCHECKFORPRODUCTUPDATES should work for you now.

Quite old but can help for the upcoming. There is a way to remove the whole update feature via the REMOVE= part on the command line.

Like: ... REMOVE=gm_o_Onlineupdate

Look at more in the deployment wiki...
