Important: Automatic updates

From this version onwards, automatic updates will be enabled to check for a new server software version every two days. The server installation will check for available updates and let the administrator decide whether to update or not. This dialog can be disabled if required. The frequency can also be changed by setting the 'UpdateFrequency' key. Please read the instructions available here: https://www.nomachine.com/AR05M00847. Enterprise Client updates continue to be manual.
