Good Morning, I'm in the final stages of prepping Office 2003 (pro & standard) for deployment throughout my domain (1200 pc's running windows 2000/xp on a windows 2000 Active directory domain and Exchange2000) In test groups it installs well, but I do have a problem I hope someone can help with. It's been decided that the reading pane must be set to bottom by default (instead of "right"). For the life of me I can't find where this is set. It under View/Reading pane, this I know, but where can I set it for deployment, or even where in the registry is it? I can change the registry setting throughout if need be, but I'd rather have it installed properly the first time. I created a .MST for deployment.
