Adobe Updater Tip

In my role, I have a lot of tips and tricks land in my Inbox, courtesy of other Adobe employees much smarter than me.. so thought I would start sharing some of this extremely useful knowledge.

Here’s one from today on the Adobe Updater, which I’m sure most of you have come to – how should I say it – fall out of love with. Anyway, to avoid having the updater run all the time (the default is every week, but it sure feels like it’s a lot more often), launch the Adobe Updater application, bring up the app’s Preferences and either deselect automatic updates or select only the applications you’re interested in updating:

  • On the Mac – this application resides in Applications > Utilities > Adobe Utilities > Adobe Updater.
  • On the PC – you can find the application at Program Files > \Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Updater 5

If you don’t have an Internet connection, you’ll have to make changes to the Prefs manually. Check out this technote for a better explanation. Thanks to Rodney S. and Tina C. for the tip!
