Auto Update check?

Post by amphiprion on Sun Sep 07, 2014 6:29 pm

Just wanted to be sure this was something that was implemented, as I now have a task scheduler entry. I also only download from the official mirrors noted on the CG website.




If this was implemented, I'll have to double back through the install menu and uncheck it, as I only did an in-place upgrade from 10.6.6 > 10.7.0 > 10.7.1, all Standard edition. I stay fairly up-to-date without requiring it, though I can see how it would be advantageous for many.

Yes, this was added in 10.7.x. By default it checks just once per month and only notifies about major updates.

If you don't want it, you can just delete the task. That would be quicker than installing again.

As long as it is legitimate, I'm not concerned about it. Really just wanted to be sure it was intentionally included. I'll probably just leave it as-is, as given the infrequency at which it runs, I don't see the need to change anything. If/when I have to reinstall, I'll just have to look carefully and make the necessary changes. Thanks again.

I just wonder if user can turn it off during installation process??

Yes it can be turned off (on the Additional Tasks and Options page) and user can also choose between 7/30/90 day interval.
