Hi Alan,
 
Great work. I will implement it this way and offcourse will take a look at
the tool you suggested ;-)
 
Cheers,
 
 
Victor

Hi Victor,
 
You are correct that the problem is in your  ItemList. The parts in bold are
not valid:-
 
ITEMLIST
NAME "Yes" VALUE Numeric 1
VALUE NUMERIC 1 DEFAULT
NAME "No" VALUE Numeric 0
VALUE NUMERIC 0 
END ITEMLIST

An item list is a list of options. Each option must have a NAME and a VALUE.
You can have other keywords such as Numeric and Default.
 
Note: You don't really need to use an item List. A checkbox would be simpler
since it gives you an effective Yes/No value:-
 
   PART "Restrict pst files" CHECKBOX
    KEYNAME SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook
    VALUENAME DisablePST
    VALUEON NUMERIC 1
    VALUEOFF NUMERIC 0
   END PART ;Restrict pst files

Note: At the risk of incurring the rage of list members, you should consider
using an ADM Editor tool (we sell one). If nothing else, download it and
play with it for a month and you will learn a lot about writing your own ADM
files!
