We have a Citrix farm, with 3 node servers. I need to be able to set the Macro security settings to 'Low' for all users. I know the reg key that controls macro security settings:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Excel\Security

But I need to run a script to set this for All users. Has anyone got any ideas please?

Are you sure setting macro security to low is your answer since this makes users susceptible to virus infection.

Where you need all users to run a macro why not purchase macro certification and sign the files to support auto acceptance of the macros.

Not an option for us, that would be the case in an ideal world.

We have Mcafee 8.5, contolled by EPO on all our Citirx servers.

I would use group policy. You can either put a script in the User Configuration>Scripts area so that all users logging on will have the script launched during login. Or, you can scrap the script and use the Microsoft Office group policy template and set macro security in there. The template files are a better option in my opinion. There are also many other features that you can set for users. You can download the template files from the Microsoft site.
