When users launch Stata, the program advises them that there is an update available. Administrators may want to suppress Stata update messages.
First, create a text file with the following information:
set update_query off set update_prompt off
Then, save it as
profile.do (make sure you save the file as a *.do file)
Finally, copy the file to the installation folder in Program Files (x86) where Stata executable is.
By default, Stata checks for updates automatically. Administrators may want to disable these checks.
