I'd suggest you should be using the Office Custom Installation Wizard in order to create a transform and apply this setting - along with any others that are required.

Thanks for your input.

I followed the same, but this tool have no option to disable menu items..
Tried with Visio Resource Kit Tools also, this one also not routed me to solution.

This one also not worked:

Any idea ...

Can the menu be removed within the app? If so, I'd suggest recording that process as a macro then converting the resulting VBA into VBScript. You can then use that VBScript in a Custom Action.

The check for updates option in office 2003 cannot be disabled using the Office Resource Kit

The user will not be able to use the Microsoft Office Update Web site if the following key is set:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Office\Common\OfficeUpdate Name = BlockUpdates (DWord); Value = 1
Hence the registry key is addded to the application.[:D]
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
