  • Great question, I discussed this with some of my colleagues and we found this blog that may help answer your question:

    http://blogs.msdn.com/b/microsoft_office_word/archive/2009/02/03/managing-and-administrating-building-blocks.aspx

    Please let me know if this helps.

  • Im needing the same thing, and no, that blog does not help at all. It tells me where they are on the users drive and how to copy to it, but I want to redirect the folder itself! And no, we're not going to use roaming profiles here.

  • Hi,

    Looking to redirect building blocks myself, did you find out how to change path from <profile> to <homedirectory>/<network>?

    regards

    Depending on what you are trying to accomplish, you may find it easier to copy a custom template with Building Blocks into each user's Startup folder.

  • So, in other words, without saying no, you are saying no?

    Not at all. You may be able to set the location using group policy; I don’t know. But, as I wrote, sometimes trying a different approach will work just fine.
