As I prepare to roll out Stylus Studio to about 100 users, I want to retain control of what version we use. Does anyone know of a way to disable the "check for latest version" option under the "help" menu?

in 3.1 BL69g available on http://www.stylusstudio.com/update, if you set
the "Option: ManualNewVersionCheck" value in the
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\eXcelon Corporation\Stylus Studio\Settings" key
to 0 (zero, DWORD), the "check for newer version" menu entry will be disabled.

We've run into a different problem. We use Wise Install Manager to repackage the software and fixes. Since the registry changes go to hk_users, when sent to another machine, the options are not disabled. We've tried putting the changes in hk_current_user to no avail. Is there anything that could go in hk_local_machine to take care of this?

This has been changed in 69i, available on http://www.stylusstudio.com/update; the registry entry which can block
automatic and manual update is now:
key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\eXcelon Corporation\Stylus Studio\Global
value: Option: ManualNewVersionCheck
If set to 0 (DWORD), automatic and manual update will be disabled.
