    prf file associated with pics rating file.

    i want to use a prf file to open outlook 2010 without the user having to enter info into the wizard. This can be done with a prf file and worked well for years with 2003.

    the problem is that the clean image we pull down to a laptop is seeing the prf file as a PICS Rating File.

    If i look at the same file on my tech desktop its seen as a Microsoft Office Outlook Profile Settings file

    both run win 7 , my desktop runs office 2003 and the other 2010

    any ideas

    Can you use the Office Customization Tool to export the settings? Then recreate a new PRF?

    yes, the custom tool will create the prf.
    the issue seems to be that many things use the ext .prf
    i need office to use it, but on my builds somethink else is using it.

    i have created my own prf using the custom tool but makes no differance if associations aren't right.

    If it's literally just the assocations, can't you just change them? At least while applying.

    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Associations

    Hi Dan

    We solved the PRF problem by using a reg frag import in GPP. The information is in the Office Resource Kit (whitepaper) document. Automatic exchange profile configuration for Office 2010 on Windows 7 now works. Hope that helps.

    Ian
