I wanted to disable the auto start feature in Teams. I under run entry in HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run, it runs the update.exe file.

However if I run it manually, Teams doesn't start. I am not familiar with Squirrel. It seems this command is used to update and run Teams. Do I need to launch it the same way if I want to update and run Teams?
What's the syntax for the command line for this?

You can disable auto start in the menu clicking your profile picture and choosing settings. The application itself needs to update regularly to support backend changes.
