NoAutoUpdate and AUOptions interaction question RRS feed

  • Question

  • With NoAutoUpdate=0 I understand this "enables automatic updates". (sounds scary)     If my AUOptions=2 (notify b4 download) is my understanding correct that the server will NOT patch itself automatically, but ask me before downloading ?

  • Yes I had that basic list of #'s and brief meanings, just wanted to confirm the correlation.   I'll have to take your word on that confirmation.
