Hi I worked through the guidance here about deploying a customised ribbon bar across a group of users

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee704589(d=printer).aspx

What I can't work out is where to save the Word.officeUI UI Customisation file so that it gets picked up by user's instances of MS Word.

I have tried saving it here, but it doesn't make the user's MS Word have the customised ribbon bar? The computer is running Window7. I should be grateful for any guidance. is there any setting I need to tweak to tell Word to import the .officeUI file?

C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Office
C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office


The .officeUI file seems ok as if I import it manually via File->Options->Customise Ribbon it updates the ribbon, but doesn't pick it up from the directory

Thanks
