    Disable updates and notifications?

      I have a server that several people log into, and are continually prompted to update Adobe products. I'm not overly familiar with the Adobe family of products; the server is running Elements 6.0.1.182, Professional 6.0.1, and Reader 6.0.0. We have some internal processes and applications that are dependent on these versions matching, and when updates are applied, they break our internal applications.

      I have disabled the Reader Updater with these registry settings:

      -----
      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\6.0\Updater]
      "bShowAutoUpdateConfDialog"=dword:00000000
      "bShowNotifDialog"=dword:00000000
      "iUpdateFrequency"=dword:00000000

      [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\6.0\Updater]
      "bShowAutoUpdateConfDialog"=dword:00000000
      "bShowNotifDialog"=dword:00000000
      "iUpdateFrequency"=dword:00000000

      -----

      In addition, I added this to a script in the All Users Start-up so that everyone who had a profile before gets the change:

      reg add "HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\6.0\Updater" /V bShowAutoUpdateConfDialog /t REG_DWORD /d 00000000
      reg add "HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\6.0\Updater" /V bShowNotifDialog /t REG_DWORD /d 00000000
      reg add "HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\6.0\Updater" /V iUpdateFrequency /t REG_DWORD /d 00000000

      So, that handles it for Reader. Is there a similar fix for Elements?
