How do I stop acrobat pro/std 2015 (DC) from asking if you want it to be the default app for PDF every time it launches?

I know there is a check box to not ask again inside the application.  I a trying to set it for users when it installs so they are not prompted.  The customization wizard only has options to set a default or let app installer decide.  I could not find reference to a registry entry for this anywhere.

Hi jackieg418,

Try navigating to Edit>Preferences>select "General" from the categories list and under the application startup option uncheck the option which reads "Tell me if adobe acrobat DC is not my default pdf application" .

No this did not help.  I know the check box is there.  I need to automate this per my email above.  Is there a registry key that I can push with the package to flip this setting?  It is for an enterprise deployment, I cannot have the message displaying to my users.  Thanks.
