I have a large 200+ office 2010 installation, running on Windows XP.

I would like to point the building blocks location for office 2010 to shared network folder, or the user’s home drive?

I want to do this in an automated fashion and not one a individual basis.

How do I do this?

By default the building blocks are stored here:
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Document Building Block
If you use roaming profiles then they will be saved to the roaming location.
