turn off username prompt on first time loading Office 2007



    I am testing a silent install to deploy Office 2007. I don't want any end user interaction at all because the helpdesk phones will be non stop. I successfully turned off the Instant search feature dialog box, which wasn't there until I found out that I needed to add the admin pack.


    But what I cannot find for the life of me is how to turn off when users first login and get the Username prompt that comes up. Has anyone done this with success. Is it as simple as finding the right GPO in the OCT? If so where? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

  • Are you trying to install office 2007 using System Center Essentials?

  • If System Center Essentials is the same thing as the Office 2007 Customization Tool then yes! Otherwise I guess I don't know about the System Center Essentials way of installation.
