My question is regarding user profiles and Microsoft Office 97 and whether settings are saved on a per user basis or for all users.
e.g. On some machines on my network, whether macro security is enabled is saved on an individual user basis (presumably in the user profile / local user section of the registry), but on other machines this setting is stored at the machine level i.e. the setting effects all users (registry entry in HKLM ?)
This is evident when using Microsoft Baseline Security Analyser (MBSA). If macro security is not enabled this will be flagged by MBSA and when drilling down, one can see that on some machines the setting is against "All users" and on other machines the setting is shown for individual users.
As far as I am aware, Office was setup the same on all machines. I cannot see what determines whether such settings are stored for individual users or for the machine (all users).
I would like to set all machines so macro security is set at the machine level and not for indidual users. I have looked at the Office 97 resource kit and the system policy files this contains. This includes options for enabling or disabling macro security but I can see no setting for deciding whether the setting is stored in the user policy or machine policy.
Can any one tell me how I can ensure all Office settings are stored at the machine level rather than the user level ?
