Prevent java 6 from updating Video chat xxx chat line
Can forced auto-updating be prevented in any other way?
The old method of disabling Java updates through the registry or GPO, mentioned in this article is no longer valid for Java 7 (1.7) and 8 (1.8), nor does it prevent the UAC prompt from appearing when the updater runs in the background.
The method explained here is a better, more up-to-date solution to completely disabling Java updates from running, and includes the required registry change to stop the updater from running, preventing the UAC prompt from ever appearing.
Disabling Java update from control panel is not as straight forward as it seems to be.
Actually I think most people on this forum will agree with your decision.
Disable updates and push them out as you need is the best option for administering your PCs. This one states that 64bit Java doesn't have the autoupdater included in the installer.
JRE installation packages are built using Install Shield Developer 7.
I am trying other browsers now and will switch out soon.Thanks Answer Summary: 64-bit: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Java Soft\Java Update\Policy] "Enable Java Update"=dword:00000000 32-bit: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Java Soft\Java Update\Policy] "Enable Java Update"=dword:00000000 64-bit: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Java Soft\Java Update\Policy] "Enable Java Update"=dword:00000000 32-bit: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Java Soft\Java Update\Policy] "Enable Java Update"=dword:00000000The deployment.properties (I mistakenly called it properties.config earlier) with that line set to false prevents that pop-up window when a java applet launches and your version is past it's "expiration date" that Java has coded.So, it doesn't have to do with auto-updating but does prevent headaches for everyone.Java update can only be disabled with administrative rights, so you need to run the Java control panel elevated.Since you can't do this through the control panel, you need to run the applet through its executable.
