You're not allowed to disable updates - you need to buy
IoT core "Pro" for that. "Contact you nearest Microsoft Windows
Solution provider for details."

• Don't like the board ? Missing features ? Change to the prosilver theme ! You can find it in your settings.
• Don't like to search the forum BEFORE posting 'cos it's useless ? Try googling : yoursearchtermshere site:raspberrypi.org

block your RPi on your router to prevent to talk to internet...
or add the windows update address to your hosts file with direct that address to localhost... (does Windows IoT for RPi has a hosts file?)
{ I only give negative feedback }
RPi B (256MB), B (512MB), B+, ZeroW; 2B; 3B, 3B+; 4B (4GB)

host file exists but all text is comment:

path: \\ip_address\c$\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts

Code: Select all

# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
#      102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com          # source server
#       38.25.63.10     x.acme.com              # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
#	127.0.0.1       localhost
#	::1             localhost

ok, thats good...
then add a line like

Code: Select all

127.0.0.1    update.microsoft.com # redirect update requests to localhost (nowhere)
127.0.0.1    windowsupdate.microsoft.com
127.0.0.1    blablabla.microsoft.com
... but i don't know the what url the real update server has... so you have to find out and replace "update.micrsoft.com" with the real update server.
you can define multiple addresses and redirect them to 127.0.0.1
(you can use any IP, but i would use 127.0.0.1, because it is the RPi itself, so you get response immediately without a huge timeout delay)

so each time windows tries to connect to the server, the address will be resolved locally from the host file to the localhost (127.0.0.1). but there is no update server and the update request failes...
that is the plan...
hope that will work for you.
