Hello everybody.

I have an incredible tough question for me, but i think it's rather simple for you guys..

The problem: In Word, both the workgrouptemplates directory and the usertemplates directory are set to the same network drive. This results in Normal.dot problems.

What I want: I want to set the usertemplates directory to the local usertemplate folder, and just the workgrouptemplates directory to the network share. However, I do not want to log in in each account, go to word, edit the settings, log out, password change blalbla.

Is there a way to do this by using the AD? I have been thinking about Registry keys which I can set, but I could not find anything.

Anyone ideas?

ps. Sorry for my bad english. I'm dutch.

Template LocationsloadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); The template locations for Microsoft Word depend on the operating system of the computer on which Word is installed and the type of template. The following list features the default template locations for the English (U.S.) version of Word. •Microsoft Windows 98 or Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me) without profiles enabled:User Templates: C:\Windows\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates

Installed Templates: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Templates\1033 [/align]•Microsoft Windows 98 or Windows Me with profiles enabled, or Microsoft Windows NT 4.0:User Templates: C:\Windows\Profiles\user name\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates

Installed Templates: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Templates\1033 [/align]•Microsoft Windows 2000:User Templates: C:\Documents and Settings\user name\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates

The following registry keys indicate where your user-customized and workgroup templates locations are stored in the Windows registry:

User-customized templates: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Common\General\UserTemplates [/align]Workgroup templates: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Common\General\SharedTemplates [/align]NOTE: These registry values do not appear unless you have changed your default template locations.

Thanks a lot!
We have a login.bat script running. In this script are some registry values already put in the registry. Can I just add those? Or is this not the way i supposed to do this?
