For some reason my desktop pc was not updating hitfilm pro as it should, however my laptop was getting the updates. And while I searched inside the hitfilm settings and such I could not find any setting that would allow or not allow updates to happen or be notified there were updates. Nor is there an option that I found like in most other software "check for updates" it was so out of date it was still running version 6.something only way I was able to get it updated was actually do a google search for Hitfilm Pro updates, which took me to the web page for the update which I had to download on my own.
Still confuses me as to why my laptop was getting the update prompts at hitfilm startup yet my desktop isn't. Is there a setting somewhere that I should check and see if it is turned off?
