Graham,

I know of no way to automate that, even using the Office Resource Kit
CIW.  It is the user portion of setup on first launch of the
application, and the CIW does not have any way to change that via
transform, nor does the MSI package.

If you do get lucky enough to find a way, please share it.

Graham-
I haven't checked this parameter specifically, but I wonder if you could
do this using a transform? You might want to download the O2K3 Resource
Kit and check out the custom installation wizard, which can be used to
generate transforms. Seems like it should be able to auto-populate that
with a script or custom action.

Subject: [gptalk] office 2003 user name / initials

Dear all, first post to this newsgroup so i hope the post to be ok.

I have establsihed Office 2003 as an assigned package to a number of
computers using Group policy.

The Start menu shortcuts have been established and i can launch the apps
as any logged in user.

Is there are a way to automate the completion of the dialog which
prompts for USERNAME / initials, based on say user information from the
Active Directory.
