We are going from Office 97 to 2003, Outlook 2003 seems to pick up the 97 settings but we have a problem with word.

I want to write a script that reads the template paths in 97 and writes them into 2003,

i have been able to read the 97 locations from the registry into a variable but do not know where to write them or how to for 2003.

If someone can help that would be great.

Maybe there is a better way to do this

I'd have expected the paths to be migrated automatically - otherwise you might find these keys useful?

"HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Common\General\UserTemplates"
"HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Common\General\SharedTemplates"

It may also be worth noting that they're both of type "REG_EXPAND_SZ", so you can use environment variables in your paths.
