messenger updates automatically

I am pushing out messenger via ZEN. After the install Messenger you start
the client and it notifies that there is a newer version and asks if you
want to update. I dont want the users to install on thier own.

Can I turn this feature off?

Where is it going to see a newer version is available?

"If the client is located in the default location of
sys:\novell\nm\ma\software\client,
there is no other configuration necessary to get prompted to download a
newer client."

We renamed the folder to:
sys:\novell\nm\ma\software.old
to disable the Auto-Update prompt.

Re: messenger updates automatically

I saw these postings but these refer to a download via a browser. The
download I see is coming direct from the client - which starts a windows
based GUI install program?

We are using version 1.0.1 and renaming to:
sys:\novell\nm\ma\software.old
took care of that.

After renaming you also need to restart the server Agents:
