VS 2008 Desktop Application

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have created a desktop application that is working great for me.  The only problem I have is that when I launch the application, it runs "Verifying System Requirements" and apparently requires sn internet connection to do so.  I needed it to verify system requirements on the iniital install, but not after the installation is successful.  Any insight as to how to turn this off after a successful installation.

When Publishing an application, there is a check box that says "This application checks for updates". Unchecking that should prevent the pop up. If it's a home grown application, you will want it turned off because it's not doing anything useful for you. "Verifying System Requirements" is not checking your computer to see if it's compatible with the program. It's checking the programs requirements to find out where to look for updates on the internet.

Originally, I had my application checking for updates.  Since then I have posted an update that does not include this checked feature and I do my updates manually.  Would correcting this in an update, solve the problem or do I need to do a fresh install?

It should fix the problem. Do you have a test environment?

i have published the update and ran it manually, but it still pops that window and will not launch if I do not have an internet connection.  Is there anything else I could be missing?
