Disabling Auto Check for updates on Windows PC-DVD DTS products when no Internet

Some editions of the following products will continually check for updates on startup if no Internet connection is available.

To resolve this, either activate an Internet connection or (if you are familiar with editing the registry - don't do this if you are not familiar) edit the registry as described below to disable the check for updates:

Each product requires a different setting in the registry:
  • ESS1047 (All Tests):  
    • Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Imagitech\Driving Test Success\All Tests\19.0\Update
    • String: DisableAutoUpdates="1"
  • FFB176 (The Complete LGV & PCV Theory & Hazard Perception Tests):
    • Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Imagitech\The Complete LGV and PCV Theory and Hazard Perception Tests\19.0\Update
    • String: DisableAutoUpdates="1"
  • FFB180 (The Complete LGV & PCV Driver CPC Case Study Test):
    • Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Imagitech\The Complete LGV and PCV CPC Case Study Test\19.0\Update
    • String: DisableAutoUpdates="1"
  • FFB178 (The Complete Motorcycle Theory and Hazard Perception Tests):
    • Key: 
    • String: DisableAutoUpdates="1"
Procedure:
  1. Press the "Windows" and "R" keys at the same time (or go to the Start Menu and click on Run) to display the Windows "Run" dialog.
  2. Type "regedit" into the dropdown and press ENTER.
  3. If you have Windows Vista or later, a UAC window will pop up asking for permission for Registry Editor to run, which you should allow.
  4. In the Registry Editor, locate the appropriate branch in the left hand pane (click the ">" or "+" symbols to the left of each branch to navigate, similar to how you navigate through folders in Windows File Explorer):
    • ESS1047 (All Tests):
      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Imagitech\Driving Test Success\All Tests\19.0\Update
    • FFB176 (The Complete LGV & PCV Theory & Hazard Perception Tests):
      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Imagitech\The Complete LGV and PCV Theory and Hazard Perception Tests\19.0\Update
    • FFB180 (The Complete LGV & PCV Driver CPC Case Study Test):
      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Imagitech\The Complete LGV and PCV CPC Case Study Test\19.0\Update  
  5. Note: The concluding "Update" branch might not already exist, in which case it should be created as follows:
    1. Right click on the "19.0" key in the left pane and selecting "New, Key" from the menu.
    2. Type "Update".
    3. Press the ENTER key.
  6. Right-click in the right hand pane and choose "New, String Value" in the pop-up menu.
  7. Type ‘DisableAutoUpdates’ as the new value name, and press ENTER.
  8. Right click on DisableAutoUpdates and then on "Modify".
  9. Type "1" into the value data edit box then click "OK".
  10. Close the Registry Editor.
