    MS Office 2010 Plus - Registry key to stop it configuring & asking for user initials

    Afternoon all,

    I've created a package using prism for MS Office 2010 plus. C drives are hidden for our users (Win7) so no config files etc can be written back to the C drive. Consequently everytime a user opens word etc a box pops up saying 'configuring office' and then comes up with a box asking for initials etc and whether to get updates from net etc... After going through these options the user can then use word with no problems. Trouble is this happens everytime they login (to same pc).

    Does anyone know of a registry key that I can alter/delete/add to stop office from running the configuration wizard please?

    Many thanks in advance for any assistance you can give.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Common]
    "UserName"="Inn Itials"
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Common\UserInfo]
    "UserName"="Inn Itials"
    "Company"="Your School"
    "UserInitials"="I N"
    As a whatever.reg file.

    There is a group policy for that, download the templates from here Download: Office 2010 Administrative Templates and OCT download - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details

    Then you can add them to a GPO and go through and configure stuff like that and the RSS prompt on Outlook open.
