We are in a managed environment and applications are pushed from SCCM to all the users.
They do not have the rights to download/install any new software.
6months back we had installed Adobe Digital Editions 1.7.1 on about 50 machines in the library and today all of them cant move ahead with using the application anymore because as soon they launch the main shortcut, it says software needs to be upgraded and since they do not have rights to install it by themselves, we are now forced to immediately package ADE 1.7.2 and push it across. (Even then when a 1.7.3 comes out, it will create another mess)
It has become so chaotic and frustrating. If updates could be disabled, we can work at our pace and install latest version to all the required systems.
Please let me know how I can disable this automatic upgrade on machines.
You are given 45 days to do the update. If you are unable to do the update until after that, then yes you will be unable to use Digital Editions. This is a primary feature and will not be disabled.
For deployment purposes you can download the stand alone installer at http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/entitlement/index.cfm?e=digitaleditions
