Check for updates automatically

This policy setting controls whether or not FileSeek will check for new versions automatically. Automatic update checks are performed when FileSeek starts up, and every 24 hours after startup. This policy setting requires a restart of FileSeek to take effect.

If you enable this policy setting and enable the "Check for updates automatically" checkbox, FileSeek will check for new stable versions automatically. Additionally, if you enable the "Check for new Beta versions" checkbox, FileSeek will also check for new Beta versions during the automatic update checks.

If you disable this policy setting, FileSeek will not check for new versions automatically.

If you do not configure this policy setting, the "Check for updates automatically" and "Check for new Beta versions" options are configurable from within FileSeek ("Check for updates automatically" is enabled in a default installation, but "Check for new Beta versions" is not).

Supported on: At least Windows Server 2003 operating systems or Windows XP Professional
