I am attempting to distribute Adobe Reader v9.3 to around 200 PC's using a 3rd party tool we use in my place of emploment.
I wish to switch off the update setting within Reader before I distribute this software.
I have used the Customization Wizard to change some of the features in the msi file including:-
Online & Acrobat.com Features - Disable All Updates, Disable all Acrobat.com access
I've also gone through the Direct Editor > File settings and dropped any rows that appear to be related to "updates".
Despite all this, when I push the software out to a client, when I go Edit > Preferences > Updater within Reader, the setting to "Automatically download updates, but let me choose when to install them" is set!!
How the *** do I configure the msi file to stop looking online for updates?!
Are you sure the mst that is generated by the Customization wizard is actually being applied? Are other settings from Customization wizard being applied? That being said, with the Disable all updates settings enabled, it should create a registry key in HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\FeatureLockDown called bUpdater. The dword value should be 0.
