Comment (by yla):

 Currently it's not possible to override the user settings through a
 `exe.config`as we have the container setting `CdSettings`which is not
 being merged with the user's one.

 As of version 4.8.4 non-admin users should not be able anymore to check
 for updates, i.e. the buttons and menu entries should be greyed out. As
 there is no 100% reliable way to detect if a user is an admin or not this
 might fail in certain environments. Then the only currently possible way
 to disable the update mechanism is to add the `update.check`setting in the
 [wiki:help/en/howto/preferences#Windows user.config] file.
