Default Workgroup Templates file location "Lost"?

Hi all,

We have our workgroup templates on the network. We configure Word 2000
to that location on the network. For Example: S:\Templates.
But sometimes users lose the location of the workgroup templates. The
other configurations made stay intact.

I would like to know where word 2000 stores the configurations and how
we can prevent the losing of the workgroup templates location in Word.

If any of you have a clue, your help or suggestions are greatly
appreciated!

Gradje.

Default Workgroup Templates file location "Lost"?

The information is stored in the registry. Specifically, for each user
it's stored in the value named SharedTemplates within the key

HKEY_USERS\user ID\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Common\General

where user ID is something unique for each profile, like
S-1-5-21-725345543-606747145-639522115-1002. Also, the '9.0' is the
specific version number for Office 2000. Also note that if the
Workgroup Templates location is blank, the SharedTemplates value
doesn't exist -- it's created only when the location is set to a value
other than the default.

When a user logs in on the machine, the value from HKEY_USERS\user
ID is automatically copied to the same location under
HKEY_CURRENT_USER. That's the one that is actually used by Word.
