Recently, I took a java course. A number of co-students had problems with version compatibility after they used their Netbeans, MYSQL, and Java stack at home and brought their work to school. So, I wanted to have the exactly same versions when I did my installation.
But, immediately after I had installed Netbeans 7.3 on Windows 7 (64 bit) and started it, a message popped up indicating that 12 updates were available. I’ve only just started, and already it wants to update.
How to turn the updates off? I don’t want them updating at all. And I especially don’t want automatic updates going on behind my back, the way Adobe Acrobat reader does.
