  2. I was tasked to automate the settings for our default user profile. Here is a little about our company background. We have 20 plus images for dell machines. We are moving away from several images to a hardware independed image. These settings are made in the ntuser.dat file of the defaut user. I choose to make the changes in the ntuser.dat file because you can use it an existing machine with the file and it is easy to update and/or remove keys. I do not like the idea of create a tmp user and making changes to tmp profile. Then coping the tmp user profile to the default user in documents and settings. under "system properties, advanced, user profile settings." This was you can't go backwards and it's hard to update. I found these key's by googling, using msfn forums. Thanks a bunch. Another way I found the keys was by using wise setup caputre to monitor registry changes when i customized the profile. This helped me ALOT when determining where settings are stored. I'm sure there are other tools that will monitor changes made to your system. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I will try to respond. These are the settings that we set for our user profiles. I tried this on desktops and laptops and it worked. I was suprised the power settings worked on laptops. folderview options " basically show everything" Power options "always on" This is the presentation setting under power options. turn quicklaunch on disable xp tour remove language toolbar Note: This document was created assuming you have knowledge of editing the registry.

  3. Ok, I have created .MST file using Office Custom Installation wizard for delpoyment. Mainly to auto fill in the exchange server %username% for Outlook. To test this out, I installed XP on a new machine and loaded office, joined the domain. When user's login all of the setting are applied. Ex. Exchange name and the %username% is filled in and outlook comes up right away without and user prompts for info. We use ghost for deployment of OS. Loaded our base image that already has MS office installed on a drive. Uninstalled Office, reinstalled Office using the (setup.exe TRANSFORMS="custom.MST" /qb-) command. Office installs fine and silently. The MST custom settings are only applied under the administator's account. Any user that logs into the machine and opens outlook is prompted to enter their name and exchange server name. Why is office only applying the MST settings for only the local administator and not everyone that logs in? Is there a setting from the previous install of Office that isn't allowing the MST settings to be applied to all users. Thanks
