It is imperative that InDesign/InCopy application updates need to be certified first by your QA staff before they are released to your customers. As a result, you may want to advise your customers who are working with a deployed version of your system in combination with our CS3 versions of our applications to proactively disable AUM inside InDesign CS3 and InCopy CS3.The AUM utility only contains Release Components; therefore, we strongly advise that your developers and QA staff Disable AUM auto-updating for their Debug applications as well. Otherwise, your Debug CS3 builds will be patched by the Release CS3 components and will not launch after the update installer is complete.To disable AUM, do the following:

  1. Launch InDesign and InCopy CS3.
  2. In the application window, choose Help > Updates.
  3. Click on Preferences
  4. Deselect the Check Box, “Automatically check for updates every month.”
  5. In the scrollable window titled “Choose the applications to update:” Deselect the check box for Adobe InDesign CS3 and Adobe InCopy CS3
