Hello everyone,
Thank you ahead of time to anyone that assists me in this problem. I have Policy Maker and under user settings - files  I am copying a file from one of my servers (that everyone has the proper rights to) to their local drive.

To be more specific i am copying aaaglobal.dot from \\servername\sys1\apps\softwise\wkinstl\aaaglobal.dot   to  %Program FIles%\Microsoft Office\Office\Startup\aaaglobal.dot

the error I am receiving in the event viewer is
The description for Event ID ( 4098 ) in Source ( PolicyMaker Files ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: user, aaaglobal.dot, User Policy {B73746BE-65B5-409B-8DA9-3BBC2D7247DD}, 0x800704c8 The requested operation cannot be performed on a file with a user-mapped section open..

Any help would be appreciated.

That is the incorrect directory to copy it into.
create another dir, then copy it to that dir, then after if you want MSw to open it as the default .dot, then rename it and overwrite it while all MS office apps are off.

This solution would normally work, that is why i am awarding half the points, but i was looking for specifically about PolicyMaker.
The solution was to create an environmental variable named Program Files that pointed to C:\Program Files   and then change the source directory to the UNC form

As far as I'm concerned GP is the preferred method to control the configuration of Windows computers and users (registry). This works great, except for all those custom registry keys that you need to configure for those applications that aren't made by Microsoft and don't have a ADM template for it. In these cases you have to make the ADM templates yourself. Although it isn't that hard , it can be kind of a few seconds of your time.

BTW, are you deploying it via terminal server ?
