How-To - ArcFM - Stop AutoUpdater Messages With A Registry Setting

Version 4

    Solution

     

    There are times when ArcFM AutoUpdater messages can interrupt some activities in ArcFM, such as during mass updates. AutoUpdater activity can be disabled for an individual computer through a registry change. The value name is AuNoMessages and can be found here:


    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Wow6432Node > Miner and Miner > ArcFM8 > AUOptions > AuNoMessages

     

    An AuNoMessages value of 0 is the default setting and allows AutoUpdater messages to be generated normally. Changing this value to 1 disables AU messaging for your current Windows install.

     

    We tested and confirmed the above on Windows 10 and 2012R2, with ArcFM 10.2.1d SP1.
