    Office administrative templates dont work??


    I have added the office 2010 admin templates to my domain policy definitions folder.
    They appear in group policy admin templates...

    my question is why is it when I make any settings to the office 2010 template (disable proofing, right click)

    why do these settings do diddly squat?? Nothing happens, no settings are changed for the user...?!

    I looked in gpo results and it says my office settings were applied to the user... but still nothing..
    spell checker still underlines the words .. none of the settings worked?

    why is this? The policy settings are visible in gpo editor..

    Anybody else had problems with this?

    If you're using 2008 R2, you should copy the ADMX versions to the Policy Definitions folder, along with language files - en-us I think it's called.

    It sounds like you've done this correctly, so I can only speculate workstations aren't picking up the policy. Have you tried running gpupdate /force ? By default GPO updates happen every 90 minutes, but I would recommend you reduce this.

    And without sounding patronising, I presume all your workstations are running Office 2010? If not - Office 2000, Office 2003, Office 2007 and Office 2010 all have different sets of ADM or ADMX templates. So if you have a mixed environment of Office 2007/Office 2010, you'd need both sets of templates. You can install both, it doesn't create any problems.
