Disabling the Office 2007 Privacy Options welcome window

21 Dec

It uses the HKLM to HKCU mechanism built in to Office 2007 (the best explanation I found was here) which means each time an Office 2007 application is started, the registry entries specified here are pulled from the HKLM entry and put into HKCU hence taking affect for all users regardles of if they have logged into the PC previously or not.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftOffice12.0User SettingsShownOptIn]
"Count"=dword:00000001
"Order"=dword:00000001
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftOffice12.0User
SettingsShownOptInCreateSoftwareMicrosoftOffice12.0CommonGeneral]
"ShownOptInFix"="Applied"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftOffice12.0User
SettingsShownOptInCreateSoftwareMicrosoftOffice12.0CommonGeneral]
"ShownOptIn"=dword:00000001

You can cut and paste the above into a .reg file and either import it into the ‘Add registry entries’ section of the OCT (which is probably the neatest solution) or run otherwise after install.

    Looks like WordPress stripped out all of your slashes from that reghack.

    Let’s see if it strips the slashes from my comment:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\12.0\User Settings\ShownOptIn]
    “Count”=dword:00000001
    “Order”=dword:00000001
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\12.0\User Settings\ShownOptIn\Create\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common\General]
    “ShownOptInFix”=”Applied”
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\12.0\User Settings\ShownOptIn\Create\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common\General]
    “ShownOptIn”=dword:00000001
