Problems with Office 2003 in a domain.

By ulfbraathen ·
Hi
We have a domain in a school with several laptops, workstations and Ncomputing clients.

When a user start a Office program for the first time a installation routine is run. This does not happen on a standalone PC.

When this happen on every ny machine a pupil starts f.x Word on, they abort the routine, because Word starts faster then. But it seems like a problem with the funtion Save as occur then. An error message says that the Normal.dot file have been changed.

Is it possible to install Office (as administrator) on the machine in a way that avoid this problem ?

You could script it

First to check if it's a new user (optional step because no harm is done otherwise); Then have it write this to the registry.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Options]
"PROGRAMDIR"="C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Office\\OFFICE11\\"
"FirstRun"=dword:00000000
"NoReReg"=dword:00000001
