Office 2010 - Sharepoint Workspace

Posted on 2011-10-13

We use a custom file to not install Sharepoint Workspace and it works fine for a day or so.  We think that update(s) for Office 2010 are somehow activating the Sharepoint Workspace function.  Once the updates or something is applied the sync folder option is activated and also the red X is removed from the Sharepoint Workspace feature.   We have the otpion locked so that an end user cannot add the feature.   Before the updates there is a red X and no folder synce toolbar addition.   I have multiple systems that do this after a few days until, we thinnk, update(s) for Office 2010 are installed and then the above happens.  We also have the admx files added to our AD central store for 2003 domain controllers but they are not configured.   SPW14.admx and adml file along with the designer files.  Any suggestions on how to turn these options off would be great or perhaps I am missing somethign in my custom setup file that I created in the OCP module.   We do not use Sharepoint in our company.
