How do I fix this custom ADM so that it will work, or apply this setting through another method.
Posted on 2008-11-13
I am attempting to set a registry value through group policy, so that when an excel file is opened through a browser it will definitely spawn in a new window.
So far I have identified the registry key.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
@="Microsoft Excel Worksheet"
Im not sure if the @ part is needed, but as a .reg this will work.
Then I have attempted to make a .adm file to use group policy to apply this setting. I am aware that I cannot set HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT values with a .adm, so I am applying it to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\Excel.Sheet.8
The .adm I have so far is below, however I am new to the syntax and whilst this parses correctly when loaded into the GP editor, it doesnt give any settings. What changes should I make to get this to work?
POLICY "Excel Open File Settings Fix"
PART "Open In Same Browser Window"
Cheers for any help
