  • The deployment tips section on ITNinja details that the updates are actually disabled in the .qtp file - http://www.itninja.com/software/apple/quicktime-player/7-1408.

It appears you need to turn off the updates not just in QuickTime, but also ensure the AppleSoftwareUpdate weekly task doesn't fire.

The best script I have found is here: http://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/show/1594-how-to-set-up-a-silent-install-of-quicktime-through-a-batch-script#article_comment_12253

What I've done in the past is this...

Launch the Microsoft Sysinternals "Process Explorer" or "Process Monitor" tool.  (Either will work. I find Process Explorer easier for this.)

Launch Apple's QuickTime installer (an executable).  When it brings up the installation wizard, switch to Process Explorer (or monitor).  Look for the setup process or msiexec and locate the MSI file it's referring to.  You'll find it somewhere in your user profile.

Grab the MSIs you find there.  Install Apple Application Support and QuickTime, but don't install the Apple Software Update MSI.

That will prevent the update prompts from running and gives you a clean MSI to install.
