Windows xp /office xp

By omie ·
This is one of the annoying instances. The office start to install if a new user logon to the computer. Is there a fix for this nature specially on workstation that are men]mber of domain. License for office is an OEM so you don't have register to ms site all the time.

Thanks for any input

Are you sure Office is doing a full install? Is it not just installing the settings to the local user profile when you run e.g. Word for the first time after logging in for the first time?

This occurs if the profile does not have office setting stored. Try running office and copying the profile to the default profile or the mandatory profile for the users. Else it will occur the first time that a user logs on and will be stored in their roaming profile. That is why for mandatory profiles you have it trying to set itself it up each time a user logs on.

If you make everyone administrator this doesn't happen.. So much for MS security.
Office 2000 was the worst for this mess.

My 2 cents
