I am running 9 JForex instances on a server. From time to time I get plenty of "What's new" or "Release notes" popup windows.
Then I have to close them one by one by hand, which cost a lot of time.
How can I suppress this popup window?

It is very annoying closing them every time by hand.

The dialogue should be shown only if the new version of the platform gets open, which happens once in 2 weeks on average. If the dialogue is shown and that instance is closed, it should not appear in other intances as there is a speacial setting saved/read in system_settings.xml.

In case you still want to avoid it, here is a small hack:

Locate the file: C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\AppData\Local\JForex\.settings\system_settings.xml
Edit it
Find the rows:
<entry key="WhatsNewVersion" value="3.3.12"/>
<entry key="ReleaseNotesVersion" value="3.3.12"/>

Change the values to:
<entry key="WhatsNewVersion" value="4"/>
<entry key="ReleaseNotesVersion" value="4"/>

Save.

You should not see the dialogue anymore until the JForex4 comes out :)

This does not help when plenty JForex platforms are opened at the same time.
Somehow one of them is always overwriting these manual changes.

Couldn't you add a check button in the settings of JForex, which completely avoids this popup window?

Please help, I am running 22 JForex now and I cannot get rid of the "What's new" popup every day. This cost me a lot of time.
Would be great to have a disable checkbox in preferences or if you would let it popup once at startup max.

This issue must be rectified. We have added timestamp parameter for this setting.

How could I switch off all these windows? When they popup they do not get closed automatically.
There are new video popups now and also this in Russian as seen below.
Please make them disappear automatically or make them visible on demand only!
