    Mandatory profile update

    Hi,

    I have windows 7 setup to use mandatory profiles for students which run off a network share. It works OK but isn't as easy to manage as xp was e.g. I have installed Photoshop elements and premiere elements and want the acceptance agreement that shows each time a user uses it to go away. In xp I would set the load the program and setup the desktop as wanted then copy the profile to the share and make it mandatory. I can't do this in 7 because the copy button is now disabled. I tried making a profile using sysprep but ended up breaking a machine trying.

    I fixed a similar problem with office using a showoptin key. Does anyone know the regkey for pse and pre that stop the acceptance agreement? Or is there a better way to achieve what I'm after?


    Thanks

    Sure I read on here somewhere that it is possible to enable the copy key someway to do what you want.

    Thanks, should have done a search first

    Does anyone know why the button is disabled? Do Microsoft use their own software? Why make something harder than it was before?
