problem with profiles

By gazza7 ·

I've set up a machine to run win 98, office 2000 and to use user profiles on a NT Domain. The problem I'm having is with the user profiles. I have set up custom start menus in the config policy editor, this works ok with the shorcuts setup for Internet expolorer, notepad etc, but not with office 2000, eg word excell etc. When running word for example with user profile I get a mesage asking me to install word from its original location. If I take the profiles off and run word, word worksok. I need to run profiles to give pupils in our school limited access to the computer and give them access to programs they will need.

Thanks in advance

With personal experience it needs to load some modules after it is completely installed. Login locally as the admin and open word, or any other office component. Let the install finish up and then test with a normal user account.
