    Disable Driver Update


    Howdy,

    System Properties > Hardware > Device Installation Settings
    Here I want to:
    1. No, let me choose what to do
    2. Never install driver software from Windows Update
    3. Disable Automatically get the device app...
    As shown in the snapshot.

    I want to do the above steps via registry (.reg file) or a .bat/.cmd file.
    Anyone can help me which keys to modify?
    Cheers.

    I found that:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DriverSearching]
    "SearchOrderConfig"=dword:00000000

    Will do the 1st and 2nd step, both Radio Buttons will be changed to the No and Never.
    But for the CheckBox "Automatically get the device app..." I didn't found the registry key!?
