In some cases you will need to force a workstation to not have the client prompt for an auto-update


  1. In ConsoleOne, set a Software Distribution Directory pointing to GroupWise 2012 software by going to
    Tools | GroupWise System Operations | Software directory management
    (see Software Directory Managment for more on this)
  2. In the SDD\Client\software.inf, set the build number to a very high number like 9999
    (SDD is the path of the new Software Distribution Directory)
  3. In the Post Office Properties | Post Office Settings, change Software Distribution to use the one in the modified software.inf
