Not renewing Pro Tools "subscription"

Can you turn that off with Windows 10?

I use Pro Tools on a Mac, and Windows 7 doesn't auto-update.

The next macOS will kill 32-bit programs, so I'm not going to do it. My current machine is frozen, in fact I'm probably going to put in an older OS on a separate SSD as well (120GB SSDs are now $20).
So I keep telling my personal computer not to update, but it keeps changing the settings on me. So far, it hasn't been an issue because my music computer was on Win 7 but I am updating and testing it out. If it turns out to be a problem, I may go back to 7 and just be offline unless necessary.

I will have to make sure I back up more often too. My OS drive only has programs on it, so hopefully it won't mess everything else up.

My computer never saw the net and never will. That's how you disable automatic updates ;)
NI has made it impossible not to get online. if I didn't love my Kontakt libraries so much, I wouldn't use it. I actually love my iLok just because it makes it so I don't have to go online for most of my programs. Everything can be done on a different computer. Though even with the ilok, ProTools wants to phone home every once in a while.

That's how I used to do it, but eventually I just had to join the 21st Century. I do have two "museum" Mac Minis though, to run Keymap Pro.

I still have Pro tools 8 LE as an emergency backup. It was hassle free to install. The idea was that you would install the software which you got on a cd, then you'd enter the identification number that came with the software CD. It's an easy and fantastic system! No need for the internet, unless you need updates I guess.
