How to disable automatic updates?

I don't do anything with UOSteam really but in using it to finish a task this week I was reminded that it automatically checks and updates the UO game client at startup. Obviously you don't want it doing this if you use EUO since it will render your EUO version obsolete even on a non-forced patch.

There doesn't seem to be an option to turn these automatic updates off in UOSteam, can it be done?

It's not EUO friendly out of the box.

All you have to do is make sure UOS is pointed to client.exe instead of uo.exe (or any other executables) in client options when starting.

I'm new to UOSteam.....but when I use uo.exe file vs the client.exe 8n order to get the most current patch (To have visibility of new content - new skeletons on looted bodies) I get the "could not find client" error message from UOSteam. Any insight yo.fix going the opposite to.insure watching? When I run client.exe alone, it goes to patched client but thru Upsteam it does not for some reason though it's the same executable file.

I make sure my client is patched to latest version 7.0.60.47 first by just running uo.exe without using steam.
Then i run uosteam with client.exe
My steam is set up as shown below and i never click on search for new updates.
