Does the Mode Reg key uncheck the Automatic Updates box in Preferences?

Enterprise environment and we're setting the Mode key under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Adobe\Adobe ARM\Legacy\(product name)\(product code) to 0 to prevent download and updating of Acrobat Pro DC.  Even after setting the key I'm still seeing a checkbox next to the Automatic Updates under preferences.  Is this expected behavior? 

We still want to manually check for updates so we don't want to hide the option using bUpdater.

I've been referencing the following:  Windows Updates

Use bUpdater to disable updates.

To use Mode, verify bUpdater is not present on the machine and set Mode as follows:

  • 0: Do not download or install updates automatically.
  • 1: Do not download or install updates automatically. Same as 0.
  • 2: Automatically download updates but let the user choose when to install them.
  • 3: Automatically download and install updates.
  • 4: Notify the user downloads are available but do not download them.

Can you also post the build number of your install?

As I indicated in my last statement, we don't want to hide & disable the update option with bUpdater , only make it a manual check only.
