I am trying to turn off the update service, but doesn't seem to work. The update service is great, but I only want to check for updates from within my application, not from the installer.

Here's what I have tried so far:

- Set the update service flag to No.

- Set the ISENABLEDWUSFINISHDIALOG flag to 0.

- Used calls to SDFinish and SDFinishReboot instead of SDFinishEX.

As a result of calling SDFinish, the installer no longer displays the update service options on the last page, but it still checks for updates when you click Finish. Am I missing something?

This is holding up a major release so I would appreciate any help.

What setup authoring environment are you using: Professional? Developer? Express?

Lee,

In order to turn off Update Service enabled Finish dialog, you need to set ISENABLEDWUSFINISHDIALOG property to blank (empty) or delete this property.

You do need to set Update Service flag to Yes because you need
Update Service runtime binaries in for your application.

You do not need to change Finish dialog. You can leave the default Finish dialog call in the code.

Thanks,
Sandeep
