[Platform_Windows]Option for automated installations to not create the scheduled task for the background updater
Currently the scheduled task will not be created if you run the installation via the gui and select disable updates (this is great and I'm glad Adobe listened to the community), however there is not an option to not create the task from an automation standpoint. For example running the exe with -install or running the msi silently will create the scheduled task. It would be nice to have this option in an upcoming release. Possibly a command line option or something along those lines.

This would be a great feature. It is a bit dated from the posting, but I can't find any other references to it.

I am distributing Flash Player with the msi to a few hundred PC's. I really don't like this new behaviour of the update task (Adobe Flash Player Updater) running every hour and the service (Adobe Flash Player Update Service).
It would be great to have the same options for the msi as in the exe: "-au 2" (all updates disabled) (commented by Stephen Pohl in the blog) that would disable the creation of the update task and update service.

we'd prefer to disable the scheduled task and service using a msi property also.
