    How to install the Office 2010 Group Policy Templates?

    Can anyone help me out with this please.
    I want to use the templates from here Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - Office 2010 Administrative Templates and OCT to set up some policys for MS Office. I've had a search around the internet and only confused myself more. I'm a bit unsure as to where all the files that get extracted need to go to? There's so many..

    Thank you.

    Also there is a 32 and 64bit version. Do I use the 32 bit version since thats what the clients use? Or do I need 64bit since thats the server.

    You literally just copy/paste them into: C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions

    If you're using 32Bit Office 2010 (what Microsoft recommend), then you only need the 32Bit files.

    Use the 32 bit as that's the target version.

    You only need to copy-and-paste the contents of the ADMX folder i.e.



    This is what it should look like...

    That's right, copy/paste the files directly into the root of C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions

    You then tweak all policies as normal. It's a lot quicker than importing all the GPOs as with 2003
