Nextcloud Win Client V2.6 > SkipUpdateCheck not working

Hello @all,

testing the rollout from new Nextcloude Win Client V2.6.

At V2.5 there was a registry option to disable the update check of the client:

Reg-Key: HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Nextcloud GmbH\Nextcloud
Value-Name: skipUpdateCheck
Value-Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1

It seems, that this reg key is not working anymore in Win Client V2.6. The Nextcloud client shows in settings the info: “Aktualisierungsserver wird überprüft…” (“Update server is checked…”) .

Can anyone confim this? Is there another solution to disable the automatic client update?

Greetings
Marco

Hi folks,
similar problem here. But Client 2.5 shows that there’s an update to 2.6.
So isn’t this a problem of client 2.5 with mentioned GPO settings?

Are there any news?

Thanks,
Boris

In cause of https://github.com/nextcloud/desktop/issues/1485 we don’t use the new V2.6 Client, so i have not tested the update of the V2.6 client any more.

We don’t have any improvement of this issue in 2.6.1
Anyone got other news?
