You can do something, if you know exactly, how it works. Here's a great article:
http://wptoolbox.com/tips/QWords.html

What you need, is most probably here:
If you specify a different folder for the WordPerfect default template (which is the one used to create new, blank documents) in Tools --> Settings --> Files --> Template, then WordPerfect will use that new folder for the QuickWords template, too. If the QuickWords template does not exist in that folder, WordPerfect will create a new, virgin (empty) copy of the QW template the next time WordPerfect is opened. (It will also do this for a missing WordPerfect default template.) You can replace the new virgin, copy with the older version, but it must be named exactly the same.

QuickWords are stored in their own special template file, QWnnxx.wpt. Here, "nn" is the WordPerfect version number (e.g., 8, 9 ... 14, 15, etc.) and "xx" is the language ("EN" for all English language versions).


So, you may instruct users to manually change the settings, you might create a script to manipulate files, or even do other abracadabra, for example, symlinking the template folder to server storage etc.

Thanks. I did not try the solution since we reinstalled word perfect and it started working. Thanks for taking the time to answer though
