Hi, how could i prevent the first popup about update when starting a Office 2013 application with use of group policy? And how could i have that group policy to run only on a spesific computer (terminal server). I have the Office 2013 admx files and i have set some policy, but i dont find anything about the popup first time a user starts a application that you have to select how you want to use updates.

Hello,

There are 4 steps in the process to manage this and this guide can be found on Technet:

STEP ONE: If you have not already, download the Office 2013 Administrative Template files. These can be downloaded from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35554

STEP TWO: Copy the ADMX files to %systemroot%\PolicyDefinitions and the ADML files to the language specific folder (such as en-us) under %systemroot%\PolicyDefinitions.

STEP THREE: Using the Group Policy Management Editor go to User Configuration | Policies | Administrative Templates: Policy definitions | Microsoft Office 2013 | Privacy | Trust Center

STEP FOUR: Configure each setting under Trust Center that best suits your needs.  If you wish to disable all of these settings, set the first one to Enabled and all the rest to Disabled

To target a specific computer (server) with you new settings please read this Microsoft  article on loopback processing for targeting based on location etc.

about the loopback, i need some more help. I got the policy settings to work, but only if i have the users in the security filtering. I have loopback enabled and merge on that policy. If i run a policy modeling i see that the user configuration on that policy is denied
