As VBScab has mentioned this has been covered - but to break it down for you again.

  • SCCM is the deployment tool, that distributes the software application packages to your workstations.
  • The application package is the installer for the software, usually preconfigured with installation options and licenses.

In your case, the software title is Malwarebytes, and you want to customise the installer of this software with the following customisations:

  • Turn off updates
  • Apply licence key
  • Disable user notification

This has to be done in the package - totally outside of SCCM, once you have it working correctly on a test bed then you can add to SCCM to test deploy.

There is a Software Tip on ITNinja for the command line options here.

However, this post on the Malwarebytes forum seems to indicate that the free .exe version is for home consumer use, and to use in a business (such as you may be attempting to do) is against the EULA.

There is a paid for, business use, installer version - which comes in MSI format, and I'm assuming instructions provided from the vendor on how to manage the licensing and configuration.

If you have the business version, in MSI format, then speak to the software vendor on how to configure for your use.

I hope that makes things clearer for you.
