    Default Xara Designer update service

    Can anyone tell me how to prevent Designer telling me my update service has expired every time I open the program?
    I'm not sure I will update, but if I do I'll do it when ready and don't need reminding every time I open Designer.

    No. None can. It all Magixal.

    If you call or submit a ticket to Magix https://support2.magix.com/customer/en/contact perhaps they will share a method for turning off the messages if one exists and at the very least it will help them to understand how frustrating the messages are to customers.

    it doesn't do it for me - all I can think is I went to the link and downloaded the update [installed it in a sandbox just to test but that's probably irrelevant] - maybe the servers note this

    and disabled info popups

    I am annoyed by this as well.

    I have added a rule in the Windows firewall that prevents Designer Pro from phoning home. For me, that has prevented the update dialogue box from appearing every time I start Designer Pro.

    Note: I am expecting that, after a while, Designer Pro will have to contact Xara's servers to validate the licence. If and when that happens, I hope all I have to do is temporarily open up the access in the firewall to allow the validation. Then close it again if the update dialogue box reappears.

    I have managed to stop this update message with a specially crafted Windows 10 firewall rule.
