Enable software auto update

Defines if ActivClient will automatically check if software update is made available.

Enabling this setting requires to specify the network location (URL) where ActivClient Auto-Update service looks for the software updates, and the path to the local folder where the software updates are downloaded. The ActivClient Auto-Update service must have read and write permissions to the folder.

If this setting is not configured or disabled, then the values remain empty and so no automatic update is performed.
