You can set this in the settings. I leave it on but decline if its a specific version there for a specific reason. Same goes for add ons.

This being the case, is there a way to create a .bat file with a command line invocation of NVDA that would tell it not to check for updates. I haven't needed to create archival portables for some time, but when I do I don't even want them to ask me about updating them. The main reason, besides needing NVDA briefly on a machine where I choose not to install it, that I create portable copies is to "freeze that version in time."
