profiiles dont work as advertised
I was running TV 11 and asked Support what I could do to prevent customers from upgrading or being prompted to upgrade. I setup a profile that was suppsed to turn that off. I deployed it to my clients. It didnt work. The application still prompts the user to upgrade and allows them ro which locks me out of connecting to them.
This failure does help TV revenue since, the constant reminders and prompts to upgrade, forces me to upgrade every year to the new version to keep up.
TV has become an application I love to hate. Its a money pit. Support will tell you that you can stay on any version you want BUT they know that the application will keep prompting users to upgrade. At that point you are stuck trying to help people who cant right click, uninstall the new version and install the old version. Then you have to explain to the customer why you dont have the newer version.
For me its a sunuk cost of $50 a month FOREVER. Which while crazy expensive compared to competition, wouldnt be so bad if support didnt mislead you on what a profile can do.
