I am not new to software packaging and deployment via SCCM. I have worked with previous versions of Visual Studio in our environment.
I am currently attempting to Install Visual Studio Team Explorer 2019 and would like to automate the disabling of Auto Updates, both the Extensions and Application updates via batch scripting and/or Powershell scripting. I am attempting to use the machinestae.json and state.json files and have apowershell script that will drop these files in place for every user on the computer, in the correct variablized folders. What I am seeing though is that the devenv.exe application is not recognizing that the auto update features are turned off for the new users that this file is placed under.
I am sure that this has to do with the privateregistry.bin file.
Is there any way to automate the disabling of Visual Studio without the user manually changing these settings? The users for this application will not all have Administrative rights to the application to update the application.
Thank you in advance
