We deployed Office 2007 using SCCM to about 500 test computers. Found out that we had a setting that should not have been, Disable OutLook's FILE | ARCHIVE menu item was turned on, so, users can't archive. Have already changed the MSP with the OCT for FUTURE deployments, but, now need to change for current ones, made more complicated by the fact that this seems to be a user, rather than computer setting.

I gather I need to do this by creating a new MSP with the OCT, but, didn't know what to start with. Do I just take the one we used, and, simply change this single setting, then deploy just that MSP? Do I have to start with an MSP with NO settings, save just this one?

And, since this is a user setting, I presume this will change things for current and future users, but, what of other users, already on the computer who got this setting, will it change for them.

We are doing a GPO to change this, too (presume that will work), but, this went out to multiple sites, across multiple Domains, so, not sure if all will implement a GPO or not...

Thanks.

For the limited number of machines involved, I'd be tempted to knock up a (properly error-trapped) script. You could run it either using a list of the machines as an input or via ActiveSetup.

Since the files are cached in MSOCache, from what I'm reading it seems like I can just run the changed MSP file, and, that will fix them? Just don't know if, since it's a User, not Computer setting, it will fix current, as well as future users...

Thanks.

I'd forgotten about MSOCache, sorry. I guess you could try a REINSTALL="ALL" etc but I'll leave it to more Office 2007-savvy members to advise on that.
