    Is it possible to use an MSP file created with the Office Customization Tool to change the settings on existing retail installations of Office 2010 Professional (not Office 2010 Professional Pro)? If so, how?

    If not, what is the best way to roll out standard settings to multiple PCs running Office 2010 Professional?

    (The PCs are running either Windows XP or Windows 7.)

    It doesn't appear that anyone here has first-hand experience on this topic.

    Does this Microsoft Technet article help?

    Thanks, Gary

    I have tried to follow those instructions, but unsuccessfully.

    What do you mean by unsuccessful?

    Did the OCT not recognize your Office product?

    Did it not create an MSP?

    Did the MSP not work properly?

    Good point, Joe. I did not explain that well.

    I ran a command in the format

    Code:
    setup.exe /adminfile \\server\share\mychanges\custom.msp
    as instructed in the Technet article (both using a UNC address and a locally-saved MSP file). While setup seemed to run, the settings in the MSP did not seem to be applied.
