You can control the automatic update features of the SDL Passolo 2015, 2016 and 2018 applications by using the Microsoft Group Policy Editor.
Download the attached Passolo ADM files.zip and load the ADM files by using the Microsoft Group Policy Editor:
NOTE: In some cases the machine must be restarted in order for this to work.
Open the Group Policy Object Editor (for instance, by running Start > Run… > type gpedit.msc).
Right-click Administrative Templates and then choose Add/Remove Templates. NOTE: Administrative Templates are available under either Computer or User Configuration. Select the configuration that fits your need for the SDL Trados Studio and/or SDL MultiTerm applications.
Select the appropriate ADM file - Passolo2015DisableUpdate.adm, Passolo2015TranslatorDisableUpdate.adm, Passolo2016DisableUpdate.adm, Passolo2016TranslatorDisableUpdate.adm, Passolo2018DisableUpdate.adm or Passolo2018TranslatorDisableUpdate.adm - and then click Open. Repeat the last two steps to add another ADM file.
The custom ADM file policy settings are now available in the Group Policy Object Editor under Administrative Templates > Classic Administrative Templates > SDL Applications. You can now enable or disable the Autoupdate feature for SDL Passolo from the right-hand frame.
