DXO PL4 - disable new update available popup?


can I somewhere disable the new version available popup on startup in PL4?
For now I want to stick with PL4.2.1 (other versions have too much bugs on metadata export).
Right now I get the popup on every startup, which is pretty annoying.

What other PL4 or PL5 versions ?

Depending on which popup you’re talking about, you can do the following

  • disable automatic update checking in PhotoLab’s preferences
  • disable DxO Hub im PhotoLab’s Help menu

If you use the Win version, this isn’t present in the Win version

Starting 4.3.0 (included PL5):
Shutterspeed and Exposure Compensation wrong on some exports

OffsetTimeOriginal = +00:00 on export - causing sometimes wrong time displayed

Keyword hierarchie

PL - all version:
Incorrect export of face regions on JPG

Sorry, was not aware there is a difference between MAC and Win.
I’m using the Windows version.

I managed to find a workaround:
In C:\Program Files\DxO\DxO PhotoLab 4\DxO.PhotoLab.exe.config there is URL configured for update check. I replaced this with localhost IP (with original URL as comment).

      <setting name="WSCheckForUpdatesUrl" serializeAs="String">
        <value></value>   <!-- https://activation.dxo.com/CheckForUpdates/WSCheckForUpdates.asmx -->

Afterwards the update check is disabled. When I remove the URL completely form the parameter DXO will crash. So for me this is now working fine with this adjusted config.

Easy way, turn off wifi, start PL then turn wifi back on.

Well it may work, that seems like a very inconvenient approach.
