Armoury Crate Auto Update

Esoteric02
Level 8

Today upon opening Armour Crate I was asked to "Wait whilst checking for updates", this process took in excess of five minuets.

Once I was finally able to access Aura Sync the program no longer recognised my hardware, with a prompt to "check updates".

Because it had just done so I decided to just close the program and reopen, this time my hardware was again recognised however none of the lighting settings I had spent time configuring were available to me.

Under settings I see no method to disable "Automatic Update", and since this experience was time consuming both during the update process and after to re-configure my lighting choices I would very much like to disable "Automatic Update" to avoid this experience in the future.

Please can anyone inform me how to disable "Auto Update"?

Thank you for any assistance.

To disable Armory Crate's automatic updates: To stop the Armory Crate UWP and Aura Creator UWP apps from updating automatically, for please follow the steps below:

1. Go to a Microsoft Store.
2. Click on the “Sign In” icon to the right of the title bar, then click on “Application Settings”.
3. Turn off “App Updates” to disable auto-update.
4. When opening the Armory Crate afterwards, it may appear that it has been updated and check "Do not update this summer"! ...and wait for the issue to resolve or get feedback from the community!

NOTE: When auto-update is off, this setting applies to all apps installed from the Microsoft Store (not exclusive to Armory Crate and Aura Creator)!

+1 I had no issues with armoury crate until the automatic update today that I didn't want. Please Asus add the option to disable automatic updates.

Extremely disappointing to see no option or available action to answer my query.

Very sad to see a none user friendly software developed by such a large manufacture.

NOTE TO @asus
PLEASE @asus, let us, who are your CUSTOMERS, CONSUMERS, those who "PAY THE BILL" and who are the greatest VALUE OF THIS COMPANY, choose the version we want to install Armory Crate, make available for download the separate versions and clean and let us choose?! Stop treating us like this, we invest in high performance ASUS products for work, study, games, entertainment and we want to have the POWER OF CHOICE and not be treated like mobile device users, where they update and install without choice, please stop it and pay attention to us!!! It will be the downfall of this company if they continue like this, we have always been supporting and we want to be proud to use ASUS again!!! Come on @asus!
