    We could'nt find a way. The only way we could find to get around it was to install the portable version it does all that we want.

    I managed to do it, but for the life of me I cannot remember how I did it. Seem to vaguely remember it's done by using a special extraction method to get the MSI. When I remember I will post.

    Ah yes now I remember. It's is all to to with the office.org folder held in appdata of a user profile. Here we use two types of profile mandatory for pupils and local for staff. For mandatory profiles I simply copied the openoffice.org folder after registration into the appdata folder of the profile. For local profiles I use a user startup batch file to copy the openoffice.org folder after registration from a server share down to the local profile. Hope this makes sense.

    Thanks for all your help but for now I just replaced the default icons on the start menu with custom-made icons with targets as follows:

    "C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3.0\program\sbase.exe" -nofirststartwizard
    "C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3.0\program\scalc.exe" -nofirststartwizard
    etc...

    I would also second this solution as its the method we used here to stop the Registration Wizard from starting.

    The file in question resides in %userprofile%\Application Data\OpenOffice.org\3\user\registry\data\org\openo ffice and is called setup.xcu

    etc...
    IIRC this method won't help if someone opens OOo by doubleclicking a file.
    put this in a batchfile to sort that.

    Code:
    ftype opendocument.CalcDocument.1="C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\scalc.exe" -nofirststartwizard -o "%%1"
    
    
    
    ftype opendocument.CalcTemplate.1="C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\soffice.exe" -o "%%1"
    
    
    
    ftype opendocument.DatabaseDocument.1="C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\sbase.exe" -nofirststartwizard -o "%%1"
    
    
    
    ftype opendocument.DrawDocument.1="C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\sdraw.exe" -nofirststartwizard -o "%%1"
    
    
    
    ftype opendocument.DrawTemplate.1="C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\soffice.exe" -o "%%1"
    
    
    
    ftype opendocument.ImpressDocument.1="C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\simpress.exe" -nofirststartwizard -o "%%1"
    
    
    
    ftype opendocument.ImpressTemplate.1="C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\soffice.exe" -nofirststartwizard -o "%%1"
    
    
    
    ftype opendocument.MathDocument.1="C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\smath.exe" -o "%%1"
    
    
    
    ftype opendocument.WriterDocument.1="C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\swriter.exe" -nofirststartwizard -o "%%1"
    
    
    
    ftype opendocument.WriterGlobalDocument.1="C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\soffice.exe" -o "%%1"

    ftype OpenOffice.org.Dotm="C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\swriter.exe" -nofirststartwizard -o "%%1"
    
    
    
    ftype OpenOffice.org.Pptx="C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\simpress.exe" -nofirststartwizard -o "%%1"
    
    
    
    ftype OpenOffice.org.Pptm="C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\simpress.exe" -nofirststartwizard -o "%%1"
    
    
    
    
    
    ftype OpenOffice.org.Xlsb="C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\scalc.exe" -nofirststartwizard -o "%%1"
    
    
    
    ftype OpenOffice.org.Xlsx="C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\scalc.exe" -nofirststartwizard -o "%%1"
    
    
    
    ftype OpenOffice.org.Xlsm="C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\scalc.exe" -nofirststartwizard -o "%%1"
    
    
    
    ftype OpenOffice.org.Xltm="C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\scalc.exe" -nofirststartwizard -o "%%1"
    
    
    
    ftype OpenOffice.org.Xltx="C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\scalc.exe" -nofirststartwizard
    another option is to make a default application data\openoffice.org directory in the users (mandatory) profile. This method means you can modify startup times and set other default settings.
