I just noticed the other day on the About page, software updates section, a message says 'Checking for Updates is Blocked'. We were on Pro 2.3 and we all noticed it, and then upgraded to 2.4 yesterday and we all still have that message. Here's the kicker, we are using a configuration I made, and when I open the regular ArcGISPro.exe I don't get that updates blocked message.
In the configuration I created, I only made a custom splash screen, the About and Startup page overrides are commented out. So I don't see how this could be causing this message. I checked my registry and CheckForUpdatesOnStartup = 1.
Is this built-in behavior of configurations to block update checking.. or a bug.. or am I missing something obvious in the code?
