Hello,

I use a powershell script to launch a sequence of applications when I simrace, to save me having to open each one individually. One obstacle I've not figured out a workaround for is when there is a pending update for Crew Chief. I'd like to know if there is an argument I can pass the startup to explicitly tell the application not to check for an update, and just handle updates manually and at my own convenience.

Thanks!

not at the moment, but I've just added this for the next release (due in a few days time). Launching the app with a command line argument SKIP_UPDATES will prevent the app from checking for app updates, but it will still check for sound pack updates (which doesn't interrupt the launch process). The 'Force update check' button should still work (i.e. will restart the app and trigger an update check)

Excellent. Thank you very much, and thank you for this great application :-)
