    Trying to make registry change for user without admin access

    Hi,

    In order to prevent the Microsoft Office welcome screen appear every time a student starts up Word, we need to set the following registry key. When they click on the welcome screen, the system doesn't save their settings.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\C ommon\General
    Dword (32-bit) Name: ShownOptIn value: 00000001

    The problem is, that because of the GPO, our student accounts have no access to the C drive, and no way to run regedit.

    Can anyone tell me how to set a registry account for another user while logged in as a local, or network administrator?

    Anyone have an alternative?

    Many thanks indeed!

    either use group policy preferences or for office download the adms from Microsoft add them to a policy and configure it by far the best way for office settings

    I use group policy preferences to set the key you mentioned. If you still have any XP clients then you will need the Group Policy Preference Client Side Extensions update installed.
