Hi All,
The painful task of deploying office 2007 has fallen into my lap.

Since a customised GPO deployment is not really supported for Office 2007 I
though i would take a look at the adms supplied to see what can be configured 

Well it seems as though pretty much most of the options can be
configured post install with a GPO for each program or computer.

My question
is this. Since im kinda new to custom loaded adms (other than the default 
ones) - is there a standard for how they are used? ie do they need to reside in 
particular directory? Do people link them on the fly when creating a new GPO? 
Do all
adms need to copied out to all DC's?

I have noticed that windows *.adm files
reside in the following locations:


there is also a little file called
admfiles.ini in the C:\WINDOWS\system32\GroupPolicy\Adm -> it looks like it 
the default adms to load for new policies 

I have sucessfully added/linked an
office 2007 adm and can see the configuration options - what things to think 

Kind regards
Robert Mariani
