Accept EULA for users via group policy for workstations where office 2010 is already installed (not using OCT for new installs)


  • I have seen ways to do this for new office installations by using the OCT tool, but I want to know if I can do this with group policy on machines that already have office installed.

    Right now when a user that is new to a machine, that has office 2010 installed on it, signs on and opens office they are prompted to enter their name and initials and accept the EULA. 

    I was wondering if it is possible to prevent the EULA popup for new users via group policy. When I look in the office 2010 templates I see no setting that looks like it can do this.

    If this is not possible in the office group policy templates is there a manual reg edit I could push out with a GPO?

  • How about generate a MSP file for this, and delpoy it with a log on script.

    To deploy the msp files to existing installations, we can use the command prompt as shown in the following example:

    msiexec.exe /p \\server\share\custom.msp
