Update Settings, I had enabled “Check for Updates every 1 days”, disabled “Automatically download Program Updates”, this means CIS will notify me if program update is available & not download it automatically, right?
But 2801 autoupdated to 2813 i.e no notification for program update, neither download/install notification.
Anyone can confirm this?
I have the same settings on Win 7 64, currently not on that system, will post here what happened on that system.
No, in previous versions, this setting didn’t install silently, infact it notified you before download i.e on clicking the notification you use to get the update/upgrade window to continue download/install of the updates/upgrades or cancel it. In none of CIS versions, program update/upgrade had silent install.
Thats why I think its a bug in version 6.
UPDATE - I read the help files of version 5 & it mentions the setting if checked will automatically download/install updates. But when I had version 5, the setting was selected but the updates never automatically downloaded/install, infact it was as the mentioned bold above.
Comparing to previous versions is not pertinent to the case. Just stick to what the UI and help files of v6 tell us. Comparing to v5 which obviously works differently only adds needles confusion.
When v6 downloads the program updates even when set not to then that’s a bug and should be reported. The behaviour differs from what the UI and Help state about the function.
The online Help actually has a minor bug:
Automatically download program updates - Instructs CIS to automatically download virus database updates as soon as they are available then notify you that they are ready for installation. (Default=Enabled)
