Office 365 (E3) ProPlus Group Policy First Run settings not properly applied


  • Hello,

    I am setting up Office 365 and have applied the following GP and GPP settings:

    These settings are supposed to affect first run of Office 365 and remove the nag screens.

    I first verify that the user in question has these policy and registry bits set via Group Policy results:

    And via the local HKCU registry:

    I also verified that the click-to-run installation contains AcceptEULA="TRUE"

    <Display Level="Full" AcceptEULA="TRUE" />

    Now this new user profile will try to launch Office Word 2013 and this is what happens:

    And it still does not obey the settings.
