Roaming Profiles and Word 2010 user template location
Posted on 2013-06-11
We are delivering applications via Citrix Xenapp 6.5. In GPO, we have the C: drive of the xenapp server restricted. In Word, however, the default location of the user templates points to the C; drive roaming profile. Users are unable to change this location using the File-Options-Advanced-File Locations in Word.
Some users need specific templates made available to them, in their default user template location (another piece of software calls on Word to edit tax related documents using these templates and references the default location of the user templates in this process). Normally in a non-citrix environment, each user would just copy the tax-related templates into their default user template location. In our Citrix environment, this is restricted.
Is there a way to lock down the c: drive with the exception of the roaming profile location? Is there a standard, or "best practice" way to configure the location of user templates in Citrix?
