Quickbooks 2007 - Disable Auto Update via Script?
Has anybody figured out a way to turn off Quickbooks autoupdate through some config file or registry setting? Is there some other way of doing it? It doesn't seem to be an option at install time.
Qbchan.dat and qbncdmdb.dat files in programdata contain configuration. copy from application where you have disabled it manually to configure other machines via script

Found a method to do this. Install quickbooks. Launch application and disable updating. Navigate to %programdata%\intuit\quickbooks 2007\components\QBUpdate and copy out the Qbchan.dat and qbncdmdb.dat files. Include a step in your installation script to copy these files back in over the newly installed application.
I don't know exactly what lines in these files contribute to anti-autoupdate configuration, but I was able to copy the files wholesale and tested it out fine.
