Is there a way to enforce a local setting on a PC (a PC that will be imaged) to enforce the "Trust access to the VBA project object model" setting?
Like a registry tweak or something to enforce this setting for any user that loggs onto the computer (vm image)?

I think that setting is per user rather than per machine (based on the Administrative templates for 2007 group policy.)

Ok thanks, I guess I'll have to use the group policy templates.
Unless there's any other way in registry to do it?

Not that I'm aware of, but this is not really my area. :)

I ran this app from Nirsoft (http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/reg_file_from_application.html) and monitored Excel as I made the change.

After I enabled the setting, it showed this in the capture window:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Excel\Security]
"AccessVBOM"=dword:00000001

So that might be the right setting. I'll have to test it.

Nvm that's still an HKEY Current User. So unless I can put it as a long script somehow, I'll have to ensure an Office 2007 AD template can be applied in this environment.
Or just tell user's how to execute a few mouse clicks to enable it themselves.....
