Hello Everybody.
I am pulling my hair out. Literally. Seriously. Please help me.

I am working on Visio 2007. Yes, I have read the notes on Appdeploy KB. I have read the documentation on Microsoft GPO. I am still not able to figure out how to disable CHECK FOR UPDATES, UPDATES, AND ANYTHING TO DO WITH MICROSOFT OFFICE UPDATES. Please help. This will be deployed using SCCM 2007.

Please help...

Thanks people.

Hi

Couldnt you just untick in while doing sequencing in feature block one?

@Riedwann, The OP states that he's deploying with SCCM (albeit with an odd reference to GPO), not sequencing the app for AppV/SoftGrid.

@OP, IIRC, you'll need to add the registry entries detailed in the 'Package KB' to the patch file you create using the customisation option for Setup.EXE. The patch file is then deposited in the 'Updates' folder. If there are other options you need to change, capture the changes using a lightweight snapshot tool (e.g. InstallWatch) and add those to the patch file, too.

I added these Keys to my package. Still, the Check for Updates is enabled.

you will need to use the self healing feature of windows installer or you can use active setup to repair those keys

Thank you so much for the input people. I will try msiexec /f [ProductCode] in ActiveSetup and update if it worked or not.

Tried both /f and /fu. None of them seem to work. They do initiate a self repair tho.

These are the reg keys I have added so far.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Visio\DisabledCmdBarItemsCheckBoxes]
"CheckForUpdates"=dword:00009340
"CustomerFeedbackOptions"=dword:00347131
"HelpRegistration"=dword:00005933

The first two would best be deployed by Group Policy and shrunk down to one: you don't need a machine policy AND a user policy.

The HKLM key won't get written during a /FU repair, because it's a machine key, not a user key. Add 'M' to write machine keys. Also, I think you'll need a space between the switch and its parameter(s):MSIExec /F U {whatever}
