Is it possible to use the same mms.cfg file to disable automatic updates for Shockwave like for Flash Player?

I don't think so.

Try setting HKLM\SOFTWARE\Macromedia\[Shockwave Version]\AutoUpdate default value to n in your transform.

I couldn't locate this key under HKLM but I did find it under HKCU. Do you suggest I run active setup to make sure everyone gets this disabled or can I get away with just adding this key to HKLM?

Not sure if this thread is still alive, but wanted to post what I came across in the Adobe forums;

Check out the post here [] dated 5/7/2008;


The final section isn't actually a bug. Just behaviour I never noticed before. Basically the initial settings in HKLM are copied to HKCU. Because I had installed and tested before switching off the auto-update, it didn't propagate to my test account...


Looks like Shockwave references the HKLM and copies any registry settings over to HKCU [similar to Windows Active Setup] on the first configuration.

Hope this helps.
