How to disable update notifications for license renewal

Started by ymc

I have SoftPerfect RAM Disk version 4.0.9 64-bit with site license installed on my clients' PC.
I don't want the notification to show up when the free update period for RAM Disk expires. Any workaround on this?

Thanks a lot.

You can disable this notification altogether by editing %PROGRAMDATA%\SoftPerfect\RAM Disk\ramdisk.xml and setting the renewalpopup parameter to false:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<ramdisk>
  <config>
    <useraccess>true</useraccess>
    <locallinks>false</locallinks>
    <trayicon>true</trayicon>
    <license></license>
    <alloweject>true</alloweject>
    <renewalpopup>false</renewalpopup>
  </config>
  <mount/>
  <autorun/>
</ramdisk>
Please make sure the RAM disk application (ramdisk.exe) is not running when editing this file. Otherwise it may be overwritten and your changes will be lost.
Thanks for prompt reply!
Hello, we are trying to use RAM Disk (version 4.4.1) and want to suppress the notifications as well. However, after applying the XML (task killed), the notification is still pop-up when the RAM disk started.

The XML content is shown below for your reference.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ramdisk>
  <config>
    <useraccess>False</useraccess>
    <locallinks>False</locallinks>
    <trayicon>True</trayicon>
    <license></license>
    <alloweject>False</alloweject>
    <renewalpopup>False</renewalpopup>
  </config>
  <mount/>
  <autorun/>
</ramdisk>

Thank you very much.

Most likely you modified the file before closing the RAM Disk app, so when it was closed, it overwrote the config file.

Please try quitting the app first using File - Quit in the main menu, then edit %PROGRAMDATA%\SoftPerfect\RAM Disk\ramdisk.xml.

Do not close the app with [X] button as it will only minimise into an icon in the notification area. After editing the file, start the app again and there will be no renewal notifications.
