Hi All !! I've packaged MS Office 2007 and everything is working fine. What I would like to do is dissable the ressources button under Microsoft Button\Word Options\. Is there a way to do this?

  • How did you add the MS Office 2007 package and did you use any switches or commands? If so, do you mind sharing?

Why are you posting in this forum as I can never imagine that you're performing a capture of Office 2007 with AppDeploy Repackager?

I haven't yet had a chance to get at Office 2007 in anger but that sounds like an option in one of the apps - I'm guessing in Word? If that's the case, you'd probably need some VBA in a template. Avoid using the NORMAL template, as this is the repository for all the standard set-up and, if it gets screwed, is a royal pain to fix. Use a template stored in the Office 'Startup' folder instead.

Record a macro in which you change the setting, save it into a new template and, as I say, save that into 'Startup'. If that works, you should include that file in your customisation patch.

AngelD; If I've posted the question in the wrong Forum I appologize. Why would anyone want to capture Office 2007 anyways!

Thanks VBScab, yes it's a common option to all Word, Excel and PPoint. Unfortunately, I could not find a way to get rid of this. This is being deplloyed to over 1500 clients, I would rather not go the macro way but I'll look at the template and see what can be done.

If it's in the app and controlled by it, at some point, you're going to have to connect with the Application object and drive it, so it's going to have to be either VBA (in macro form) or VBA adapted to VBS (run as a CA in your deployment).

Unless anyone knows differently, of course...

I cannot see anyway in VBA to remove the resources option(button) or to disable(remove) the "Check for Updates", "Contact Us" or "Go Online". Has anyone been able to do this?

I seem to recall reading (in PCW magazine's review, I think) that the built-in menus and button bar cannot be accessed programmatically. I seem to remember the chap saying that lots of corporate customisations would no longer work.

I'm pretty sure, though, that 'Check for Updates' can be disabled as an option when customising the installation. Don't quote me on either, though.

I did find that adding the HIDEUPDATEUI with the True value in the Modify Setup properties of the OCT removes the function. I've tried this and it didn't work for me. Next step is trying to get information from MS !!

Next step is trying to get information from MS !! No. Next step is to open the MSIs and look for that property which will lead you to the appropriate registry entry. The step after that is to ask MS.
