Would anyone have a solution for removing or disabling "Check for Updates" in FileZilla during packing with installshield?

The only method I know about to disable updates is to compile the program yourself with the -disable-manualupdatecheck option. Here is a website that will assist you in setting up a build environment to compile filezilla from the source under Windows. http://wiki.filezilla-project.org/Compiling_FileZilla_3_under_Windows#Setting_up_the_build_environment

check out:

filezilla.xml (Vista => %UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\FileZilla\filezilla.xml) XP => search for it using:
cmd.exe => c: => cd \ => dir filezilla.xml /s

%UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\FileZilla\filezilla.xml should be minimum as following:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
-<FileZilla3 platform="windows" version="3.16.1">
<Setting name="Config Location">%UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\FileZilla\</Setting>
<Setting name="Kiosk mode">0</Setting>
<Setting name="Disable update check">1</Setting>
<Setting name="Greeting version">9.9.9</Setting>
<Setting name="Update Check">0</Setting>
<Setting name="Last automatic update check">2020-05-02 16:45:08</Setting>

Update your file to correspond version (mine was 3.16.1 at the time), and set Last update date further away
