Hi ,

Has anyone tried packaging Office communicator 2005 . I am interested in a particular setting in communicator .

Office communicator can be configured for a user to allow all the contacts to be added by default without prompting the user to accept or deny .

As these setting are user specific they are only available for configuration if the user is logged into the communicator .

I need to understand if this setting can be configured by changing any registry entry . I assume if it is there it will be an HKCU entry . If yes then I can incorporate this HKCU entry in my package and it will automatically configure the seting first time a user launches communicator . This will save us a lot of time in configuring it for each individual user.

Furthermore it is quite possible that this setting could be a server side setting . In which case it can't be configured through packaging .

Any suggestions will be of great help.

Cheers ,

Communicator has an msi file, you don't need to repackage the application.
For HKCU to apply to all users, you need to set up self-healing. Hope this explains:

In your case, I'd rather use a group policy template - this way, you don't have to redeploy an application if you later decide that a setting needs to be changed... There is a .adm template that comes with the communicator - check that one out.
