Hi Experts,

I am struck in QuickTime 7.5.5. Can any one help me please. I wanted to turn off the auto updates and I am able to do it with the help of quicktime.qtp file copying in "C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Apple Computer\quicktime.qtp" with the help of a vbscript putting in Run registry. But the problem is the user has to log off and log in after installation to get autoupdates off. So can any one help me in turing off the autoupdates without log off for any user.

Thanks in Advance.

Hi Ramesh,

As you have placed the vbs file in the run key, it will get executed only when the user log-in again, so that the user needs to log off and login to execute the this vb script.

You can also write a custom action to drop the files in the user profile so that the file will be placed in the exact location for the user in which it is installed. So it will work with out the log off and if you log off and login in another user the run registry will execute and place the file for the other user.

Note : you need to have both the custom action and the vbs file also to be placed in the run script.

Hope this will work.

there is no need for CA's to get the files there.

Native MSI function support deploying files into that location, its been documented and discussed 1000's of times on here how to deploy files into the users profile.
