Excel 2003 Addin Configuration

We have a terminal server farm running server 2008 r2 x64bit and we also run Excel 2003 sp3.

Every night we have a script that removes all user profiles from the servers to conserve disk space and we use a 3rd pary software call vWorkspace to write registry entries and common files back to a vworkspace profile.

We have a user that has 2 excel addins that they store on their personal network drive and link to excel using the appropriate screen within excel.

However the next day, excel has lost the config that links the application to the xla file on their personal folders.

I have been searching for the registry key or file that stores this information but without luck. I then plan to add this into vWorkspace to it creates the appropriate references at logon.

Can anyone help with this?

Thanks

xla addins are normally referenced in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Excel\Options in keys called OPEN, OPEN1, OPEN2 etc.  Obviously the 11.0 is version specific, but I think that's right for 2003.
