    Prevent 3rd Party Apps from Prompting for updates

    SolarWinds Community Team

      Hello,

      What is the recommended way to prevent 3rd party apps from prompting that an update is available?  We are using Eminent Ware to manage the updates, but Java will prompt for new updates on its own and we would like to disable that.  I can disable Java updates through the registry with the following registry entry:

      HKLM\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy 
      EnableJavaUpdate  REG_DWORD 00000000
      EnableAutoUpdateCheck  REG_DWORD 00000000

      But if I make this registry entry will it prevent Eminent Ware from being able to update the system as well?

      Thanks,

      Eric
