This configuration variable applies only to the thin client automatic update feature. The value of TC_CHECK_INSTALLER_TIMESTAMP determines whether the thin client compares the modification times of the installer files on the client and on the server. If this variable is set to "1" (on, true, yes), and the modification time of the client file is older than the time of the server file, the automatic update process is initiated. If the installer file does not exist on the client, the comparison is made with the modification time of the thin client executable file (acuthin) currently running. The default value for this variable is "0" (off, false, no).

See Automatic Update Overview for more information about this variable.
