Disable Auto Update

I built a package to install Atom using SCCM. It is working but would like to disable automatic updates so users can’t update on their own. Is there a registry key or config file somewhere i can modify w/o having each user do it manually themselves?


If you don’t want Atom to update, just use the .zip file from GitHub instead of the full installer file. If you unzip that file, you’ll find that it’s just the Atom executable and dependencies and has no updating functionality. You don’t have to configure anything.

Thanks, sounds good. So i’m assuming the “Check for Updates” button under Settings doesn’t actually function?

No, it works just fine. That only updates packages, not Atom, and it’s not automatic.
