I'm building a deployment image for my job. I want to use the Office 2003 Resource Kit to pre-configure Office so I can install it as the local administrator and not have to login with my default user template account, make the customizations, and thus dirtying up the profile.

By default, Office 2003 sets up all toolbars as a single cluttered menu and I would like to make them stacked (Reference the Attached Image). Is this possible to do via the resource kit for all applicable applications?

To do this or any other such tweaks to Office via the resource kit, get a freeware app called RegShot. Basicly this will allow you to take a snapshots of your registry and then it will go through, compare them and display the changes made.

Use common sense though, background applications writing to the registry during your shots will be reflected, so close as many apps possible. Basicly just look though and note the keys of the relivant changes.

In this case, these changes were made to "[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-...\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Data". Simply export the data key, opened it in notepad, changed the key path to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Data" saved it, and then used the Office Resource Kit's Custom Install Wizard to make these changes upon install.
