Unable to run a PRF file with Office 2007

I'm trying to create a prf file to automatic Outlook 2007 setups.  However, I've only been able to find the Office 2003 Resource Kit.  I've created the PRF with that, but when I try to run it, it opens up the Content Advisor, and returns this error:

"An error occured while the PICSRules file <filepath to the prf> was being loaded.  You may want to contact the author for the correct version of this file.

An unrecognized keyword was found near line 0."

At first, I thought it may be due to the fact that I created it incorrectly, but I have a PRF from a previous company that I know worked, and it returns the same error.

Below is the text from the PRF file.

Outlook 2007 doesn't use the ORK model, so using the 2003 ORK you will be missing out on new features.  Instead, you create your Outlook Custom Installation Profile by running "setup.exe /admin" and then saving the Office Customization File it creates in the Updates folder in the network installation point.

See this for the how-to:  http://technet2.microsoft.com/Office/en-us/library/fff8197f-284d-4837-8086-47cf2cb410ed1033.mspx?mfr=true
