How to prevent popups for upgrade to Vegas Pro 16

mka wrote on 4/19/2019, 6:57 PM

After every few days when I start my Windows 10 computer I will get a popup asking me if I want to upgrade to Vegas Pro 16 or Sound Forge (I have Vegas Pro 14 and Sound Forge Audio Studio 12). This is before I start doing anything on the computer. Is there a way that I can prevent this? I am getting tired of it and have not found anywhere in the software to turn off this feature.

isnt there on the window which pops up at the bottom left a small notification options to select that it should not notify you anymore?

Re W10 start - go to Task Manager, StartUp tab, and disable MAGIX connect in the scroll list of startup programs. Hopefully, this should stop the W10 startup popups.

@mka the MAGIX Connect can be uninstalled (Control Panel) and that will end the ad's.

Thanks for the answers, however I cannot find MAGIX Connect in
  Apps and Features in Settings
  Task Manager StartUp
  windows startup folder
I do have a MAGIX/Connect folder in Program Files (x86). Next time I see the popup I will check its window to see if I can eliminate the notification that way but I did look for something like that in the past and found nothing. By the way, I also have Vegas Pro 13 installed, in case that means anything.

Have you unchecked the Newsfeed option?

I also have Vegas Pro 13 installed

As per john_dennis' suggestion, you will also need to turn off the same selection in VP13 under Options/Preferences, but in VP13 it will be called 'Net Notify' rather that Newsfeed.

@mka open your Windows 'Control Panel' and select 'Programs', select 'Uninstall a program'. Scroll down to find 'MAGIX Connect'. Uninstall this program.

Alternatively, open Magix Connect from the Windows system tray hidden icons, and disable everything for which you don't want to receive latest software updates and offers.

Yes, the Newsfeed options in Vegas Pro 13 & 14 are turned off.

I have no MAGIX connect icon on desktop or on system tray.

For Eagle Six:  Windows 10 has no Control Panel - only Settings.
     When I go to the uninstall program window, MAGIX connect is not listed.
     The only MAGIX item listed is "MAGIX Audio Cleaning Lab".

The connect.exe file in the MAGIX/Connect folder in Program Files (x86) is 317KB in size, but clicking on it does nothing. There is an unins000.exe file in that directory but I have not tried to click on it.

I do have an app named "Connect" listed in Apps & Features but I cannot get any information about it by right clicking. It does have a date of 9/4/2017 which suspiciously is the same date as some files and directories in the MAGIX/Connect folder. The only information I got by searching on the internet is that Microsoft has
a connect app in Windows 10, so I do not want to mess with that without knowing more.

To access control panel in Windows 10 just search for it in the search box bottom left on your desktop. It looks very similar to control panel from win 7

wjauch: I checked the control panel but it lists the same apps that I get from settings option (and no MAGIX Connect)

@mka

Connect is an old version of Magix Connect. Uninstall it.

mka wrote on 4/21/2019, 5:52 PM

Thanks for the info vkmast and john-brown. I will uninstall the Connect program and hopefully this will solve my problem.

 

mka wrote on 4/21/2019, 10:58 PM

So I uninstalled the Connect program and the uninstall program did say it was a MAGIX program which is good. Thanks again to all of you for your help.
