How can I disable automatic notification of program updates?

By default, Minitab desktop products will check for updates once per day and you can manually check for updates at any time. If you would like to remove this functionality:
  1. Type Program and Features in the search box and press Enter.
  2. Select your product and click the Uninstall/Change button. You may be prompted for an administrator password or confirmation.
  3. The Setup dialog will appear. Select Change.
  4. Uncheck Enable checking for software updates. Click Next and Install to reinstall the software without the update check feature.

For subscriptions managed through the Minitab License Portal, you can control updates in the Deployment Preferences settings for your subscription.
