How do I disable auto updates via silent mode or during installation?

Is there a way to disable auto updates BEFORE a user installs the app? Specifically, my team and I deploy Wireshark using batch scripts remotely to machines. Reading through some old Q&A posts, it looks like this has not been achievable...was hoping this might've been resolved with the newest version out, 2.6.7. Thanks in advance.

If it's you who installs Wireshark, you can also deploy a preferences file, after the installation, with auto updates disabled.

Check the preferences file and the following option in that file.

# Check for updates (Windows only)
# TRUE or FALSE (case-insensitive)
#gui.update.enabled: TRUE

uncomment the option and set the value to FALSE.
