Auto-Update and Customized Installers

Hi all,

there is a problem when you are using a customized installer with auto-update which is known for almost 9 months now:

https://m-files.force.com/s/article/Error-M-Files-Online-installed-with-a-custom-installer-auto-updates-to-M-Files-2018-workaround

As far as I could see the proposed workaround will stop all automatic downloads of new versions of M-Files.
Does one of you have any really working workaround that let's people update without exchanging M-Files Online with M-Files 2018?
