5.x-6.x: How to disable checking for new version?
Posted by Aleksandr Alekseev on 17 July 2012 07:00


I'm using old version of EurekaLog (previous major version). There are new version of EurekaLog available, but we do not plan to upgrade. However, my current version keeps asking me about availability of the new EurekaLog version. How can I disable this dialog?


A). Go to EurekaLog IDE options and uncheck "Check for new version" option.

  • For EurekaLog 7 you can find it under "Tools/EurekaLog/IDE options" IDE menu item.
  • For EurekaLog 6 you can find it under "EurekaLog/EurekaLog IDE options" IDE menu item.
  • For EurekaLog 5-4 - there is no GUI option (see case B below).

B). Manually edit EurekaLog.ini file (located in Windows folder or virtual store - see below). You should add the following lines to it (or alter lines if they are already present)


When editing file or copying it - be awared about virtual store in Windows 7/Vista. Basically, the system behaviour can be altered whenever UAC is on or off.

For best result - edit/replace EurekaLog.ini file in the following locations:

  • C:\Windows\EurekaLog.ini
  • C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Windows\EurekaLog.ini   (replace "username" with your real account name)

If the file does not exist - create it in Windows folder.

You will need to have administrator rights to edit/change C:\Windows\EurekaLog.ini file. The best option is to copy file into another location (say, My Documents), change it and then copy back - Explorer will automatically suggest you to elevate for copying/replacing the file (only for Vista+ - if you're working under administrator account and have UAC enabled).

File in virtual store can be edited/replaced without any additional requirements.
