    Notepad++ update notices despite preferences set unenabled - fix

    I've been getting these twice a month despite Settings>Preferences>Misc>Enable Notepad++ auto-updater being set to off. I'm using the portable version of Notepad++ v. 7.7, and so I'm not sure if this is happening with the installed version or not. This may be intentional behavior. I found it an annoyance.

    I was able to suppress them by setting the date forward in the config.xml:

    <GUIConfig name="noUpdate" intervalDays="15" nextUpdateDate="20250721">yes</GUIConfig>

    Note: If I tried to edit the 'config.xml' file with Notepad++ itself, obviously it will overwrite the changes. So either use Notepad or make a copy and paste in back into the proper directory after Notepad++ is closed. You might want to test this by setting the value to today's date with another editor and then opening Notepad++. I've been consistently get the notice every time as it then sets the nextUpdateDate to today+intervalDays
