Hi Folks,

I've setup a Win2k8 R2 with Terminal Services. Outlook installed for the users. The first time the users are going to logon to the RDP, a new profile will be created. To prevent users to be prompted to configure the Outlook profile when they start Outlook for the first time, I created a PRF file using the OCT.

Now the question..... What is the best way to start the PRF file? I can start it by changing the Outlook shortcut outlook.exe /importprf \\localfolder\outlook.prf.

If I do that, will it run everytime they stat Outlook? Will it create a new profile every time? I only want it to create a profile th first time users start Outlook. Is there another / better way to use the prf file?
