I have office 2003 deployed through group policy and when I try to open outlook as a new user it makes me reinstall office for it to work. How can I install it so that it works for any user that logs onto the pc?

It makes you reinstall, or a "First Run Customization" by the Windows Installer??

it gives an error if it was installed under a different login. After I add it through add remove programs then it starts working.

Yes, I set the info for my exchange server name and a few options like that, but only the ones that would be universal for everyone.
