Hello, We are currently running Outlook 2003 on an XP desktop.  We setup the following keys in the registry for when a new users logs on to a workstation, it sees that Outlook has never been launched before then users the PRF in the path specified to create the profile for the user.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Setup]
"First-Run"=dword:00000000
"ImportPRF"="c:\\MySetupDirectory\config\\tools\\outlook\\Newuser.prf"

We will be migrating to Win 7 with Office 2010, does anyone know if we can do something similar so it first see that Outlook has not been launched yet for the first time then used a new PRF file to configure the users profile.
