Note
The above mentioned registry tweak to disable the auto-update can be edited directly in the msi (u can use 'orca' to do this):

Just search in the [registry] table for "DoNotShowAgain" and set it´s value to "#1".

I´d recommend to edit the [Property] table as well, setting the value for property "AgreeToLicense" to "Yes" and for "RebootYesNo" to "No".

Note
This is an Installshield MSI wrapped in an EXE. To extract the MSI, run the EXE and look in the "%TEMP%\_is???" directory. Copy the MSI out. There doesn't seem to be a need for the INI files.

Registry Tweaks:
To Disable AutoUpdate:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\DWF Viewer\Settings\AutoUpdate
"DoNotShowAgain":1 (REG_DWORD)

To Suppress the Startup Page:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\DWF Viewer\Preferences\User Interface
"Suppress Startup Page":1 (REG_DWORD)
