Just some thoughts....

When I have run into issues with a direct conversion of an ADM template with 
the Full Armor tool, I have had some success by first running an ADM template 
through the SysProSoft 'ADM Template Editor' tool 
(http://www.sysprosoft.com/products.shtml) and then running the resulting (and 
renamed) ADM file through the 'Full Armor' tool. From what I can tell, the 
changes are mostly focused on rearrangement of the Strings within the template 
though there could easily be others.

That said, I have NOT attempted anything as complex as the Office 2003 
templates. One of the issues (nits) I've had in the past with the Office 
templates was the lack of any "Explain" tab text. Looking from this at a higher 
level, that 'should' make them simpler to covert. On the other hand, you never 
know what might set off problems. Perhaps the ADMX formats 'really' want 
'Explain' text...and if missing...could generate problems in the converter.

Like I said, just some thoughts...

I haven't tried it but knowing the Full Armor Migrator as I do, I suspect those 
ADMs are too complicated or not formatted well for it. What kinds of errors are 
you getting?

I hope I've got this right, first time I'm emailing here...

I just have a quick question, has anybody successfully migrated the Office 2003 
ADM files to ADMX? I've attempted this a few times using the FullArmour ADMX 
v1.2 tool unsuccessfully and have also posted the question on a few other 
forums without receiving any answers, so I thought I'd try my luck here.

Would be great to know if anyone else has attempted this and if they've managed 
to successfully convert the files.
