Word 2010 missing template timeout
Posted on 2012-09-19
Users opening Word documents in Word 2010 in our AD environment are having to wait a minute or so while Word looks for the original template, which is timing out as the server is no longer there. Although it's possible to circumvent this by opening the file from within Word and then pressing Escape to cancel loading of the template, this isn't as convenient as double clicking the file in Windows Explorer. Is it possible to change the timeout using group policy so the waiting time is lowered to, say, 5 seconds, or the behaviour if the template file can't be opened initially?
