When Installing Vocera, Service Pack First, then Disable Windows Updates!

Posted by: Kenny Schiff on January 7, 2008

It is highly recommended that customers install all current MS Service Packs and Hot Fixes prior to installing Vocera Communications software. Once a Vocera server is built, make sure to then turn off “Automatic Updates.”

To Disable Automatic Updates using Control Panel Tools

  • Click Start, and then either click Control Panel, or point to Settings and then click Control Panel.
  • Click System, and then click the Automatic Updates tab.
  • In the Automatic Updates dialog box, clear the Keep my computer up to date check box.

Note that Microsoft specific updates and hot fixes are approved for manual installation; however, do not install updates and/or patches for the following software:

  • Java
  • Tomcat
  • Apache
  • MySQL
