For 2022 and 2023 products, Autodesk has implemented that the following components are updated automatically on a regular basis:

  • Autodesk Genuine Service
  • Autodesk Installer
  • Autodesk Licensing
  • Autodesk Interoperability Manager (for Revit and Inventor Files)
  • Inventor product home screen

For some, failed updates are causing the unintended install of user’s Autodesk Products.

We strongly recommend network administrators disable these automatic updates on their end-user’s PCs to avoid these unintended installs.

To disable automatic updates of these components, follow these instructions:

  1.  Open the Registry Editor in Windows
  2.  Browse to “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\ODIS”.  If the “ODIS” key doesn’t exist, create it.
  3.  Right Click: Create a new “DWORD (32-bit) Value” with:
    1. Name: DisableAutoUpdate
    2. Value: 1
