i downloaded an early discord client via the wayback machine and installed it in a vm, but it updated automatically to the latest version. launching discord through the archive in the install directory launches as a blank gray window. is there a way i can use an old discord version and have it not update to the latest version?

and no, disconnecting the network adapter doesn't fix it, it just says it couldn't check for updates.

As far as I am aware, Discord does a version check of some sort when connecting, either based on protocol or a string. An outdated Discord client shouldn't be able to successfully connect to Discord.

 

Is there any reason you need to use an older client?

Does it not let you move on from there? Does it demand you update it?

i was watching old youtube videos where they used older versions of discord and wanted to do a comparison between old versions of discord and the current version
