it seems there was an issue with the posting, so I'll send it again.
The release notes for 1.4.3 state: "The update check can be completely disabled." (http://www.pdfforge.org/content/whats-new)
What does this mean? Is this related to DisableUpdate as described in http://www.pdfforge.org/content/hidden-settings ? I tried to set HKLM\\SOFTWARE\\PDFCreator\\Program\\DisableUpdate = "1", but it has no effect, the update buttons are still there and enabled.
Also please unban this site on bugmenot.com. It is very unconvenient that everyone has to register an account and solve the recaptchas (which are impossible to decipher) everytime you want to submit a posting on this site. It would be much easier if everyone who wants to can use the same account. Because I cannot submit the login information on bugmenot.com I'll post it here:
