MS Office Gurus, need some help

8 posts in this topic

When we re-image a machine, the first time the user opens office it prompts them to register their name, and put in their initials. Is there a quick and easy way to bypass this, or a registry key I can edit with a script to fool it into thinking this has already been completed?

Googling "Microsoft Office Registry Bypass" or anything similar just brings up tons of pages on how to make a illegal or demo copy work, etc... these are licensed copies, I just don't want the end user entering their info

I'm no Office guru but with the help of Google I could find this. Maybe it's helpful.

Both seem to be leaning towards Office Customization Tool

I won't be doing the Office installs, just getting a machine with Office pre-installed on it. I was hoping for a registry key that I could add to just stop the prompt for name and initials

In this case i would suggest to use a registry tool like RegDiff to export the registry to a file, set name and initials in Office, do another export of the registry and then compare the two registry files using the RegDiff tool.

So you can see which keys to set by your script.

Just in case somebody else needs it...

Func RegisterOffice ()

RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOfficeCommonUserInfo", "Company", "REG_SZ", "put your company name here")

RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOfficeCommonUserInfo", "UserInitials", "REG_SZ", "initials you want here")

RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOfficeCommonUserInfo", "UserName", "REG_SZ", "name you want here")

EndFunc
