I have installed mysql 5.7, and from time to time (once per several days) it looks for updates (as I understand). Console window opens for several seconds, and then dissappear. It doesn't care, that I'm watching a movie in this time, and this console is on the top of my player. It's really annoying, why MySql is updating in this user unfriendly way? Can I configure it to do it silently?
I may be running a more recent version of MySQL, but what I had to do to disable this was:
- Run the MySQL Installer (located at C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\MySQL Installer for Windows)
- Click the wrench icon
- Un-check the box to check for updates
Best is to hide the console only, and let it do what it's meant to do in the background.
Go to 'Task scheduler' > expand 'Task scheduler library' > 'MySQL' > 'Installer' > 'Manifest Update' > right-click 'Properties' > choose 'Run whether user is logged on or not' > check 'Do not store password...'
That should do it.
