The V4 version of the SysProSoft tool can convert ADM directly to ADMX and
to my experience does a better job than the Full Armor software.  As an
added bonus, the person behind SysProSoft, Alan Cuthbertson, hangs out on
this list.

All,

 

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.

Patrick-

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?

Hi,

 

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.

 

Thanks

Patrick Leathen
