    office settings installing every logon

    I am using redirected desktop, apps and start menu the only problem i have is that everytime they log into a pc word, outlook ect ect all need to be reset. I thought the settings were save in the apps dir but i might be wrong. has anyone got any idea. At the moment i use a login script and not a profile. I am thinking i need to use a profile. I know it only happens after I run delprof on the network (every other day). If it just a case of adding a profile thats not a problem but I tried a MAN profile but it did not work with outlook tried to log everone in with the same username and password.

    I think because you are not using roaming profiles or mandatory ones the profile is being generated locally as the user logs on. In this scenario I think you will always get this type of behavior. I run delprofs and have the following to disable deletion of certain local user profiles:

    ::@echo off
    for /f "tokens=*" %%a in ('dir c:\docume~1 /b /ad') do call rocess "%%a"
    goto :eof

    rocess
    If %1%=="administrator" GoTo Exit
    If %1%=="All Users" GoTo Exit
    If %1%=="Default User" GoTo Exit
    If %1%=="LocalService" GoTo Exit
    If %1%=="NetworkService" GoTo Exit
    If %1%=="admin2" GoTo Exit
    rmdir c:\docume~1\%1 /s /q

    Don't know if this would help your situation.

    You could always go to creating a suitable profile and copy it to the server, make it mandatory and set all your users to load that profile. You have to remember when creating the profile to run all the software your users are likely to use. Also create the profile on a machine that has no group policy applied and log on as a local user. Here is an example of how to do a mandatory profile.

    Here we use desktop redirection and then use a base default profile that is held in netlogon in a folder called Default Profile. Each time a user with no profile logs on Windows checks netlogon first before the local Default User profile and if there is one it loads that.
    The gets around no end of user specific niggles like the office profile needing to be created.
