disable saving normal.dot in office 2003 and 2007

By IhateWindows8 ·
Hello
We use a series of dot files in our network, adapted to our standard fonts, layout, etc. These dot files are saved and stored with the 'read-only' attribute. As everyone in our network uses these dot files, everyone gets the same "error" message, stating that the normal.dot file cannot be saved, due to the read-only attribute. Is there a way around this problem? We don't want the individual users to be able to change the dot files.

A process to re-copy your custom normal.dot to the workstation?

Microsoft does not support sharing the normal.dot template, as you may know: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/811468

But, you can setup workstations to share custom Workgroup templates:

Thanks! Many times already we tried to convince Microsoft to make sharing the normal.dot template possible. No success ...

Will try your solution.
