I recently created a packaged install of Office 2003 to assign to workstations. I created a .mst file with my specifications and deployed the package. Everything worked great except when I launch Word for the first time the computer prompts me for my Name and Initils. Is there a way to configure this to a default value using the .mst file or another method? I am using Server 2003 and XP.

    I'm not sure. Can you push registry settings via group policy?
