Hi all,

I'm having a hard them disabling protected view in MS Office 2010 in Word, Excel and Powerpoint. I could do it manually and login with all different accounts and disable it but that would be a bit cumbersome (100 accounts for now). What I tried was importing the MS Office ADMX template locally to the Parent VM and disabling it through local GPO based on the template. Works fine when I log on the Parent but seems to reactivate ones I recompose.

Any help with this would be awesome.

Try the attached registry keys. You can either import the registry keys or add them to the workload

Why not modify the GPO on a Domain-based Computer?

The Protected View settings are specific to each application in Office (Word, Excel and Powerpoint only), and to each year (2010 and 2013 only).

Grab the ADMX templates, install them to the PolicyDefinitions folder for the domain, or add them individually to a GPO in Group Policy Management. ADMX Office 2010 / ADMX Office 2013

Windows Server 2008, 2008 R2

Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2
same steps as the 2008 & 2008R2 link except for step 4.

The settings are in: User Configuration, Policies, Administrative templates, Microsoft $PRODUCT $YEAR, Security Settings, "Disable all Trust Bar notifications for security issues", Enable.

Check the attached screens

Hi Guys,

Thanks for your help, I actually miss read the GPO options. The wording is contrary to the one in the Application itself. Basically, by setting it to disable in the GPO, I was enabling Protected View in the Application.

Should be fine now.

Thanks again.

What our customers are saying

Randy Groves - Teradici

"As the developer of the PCoIP protocol, we do a lot of our own internal benchmarking to make sure that we’re continuing to improve our protocol. But we can’t actually publish our internal benchmarks because everybody might think that the tests are biased. So when we want to publish results, we use Login VSI. That way, if a customer wants to repeat our results they can.”

Randy Groves, CTO at Teradici

Todd Mace - PernixData

"Login VSI has been a great partner for us. Customers use PernixData with Login VSI to help validate their user experience. Login VSI helps to see what their performance bottlenecks are and our software helps to mediate some of that. Login VSI has been a kind of defacto standard to be able to help that validation and help the customer to be able to come up with a solution to fix it."

Todd Mace, Product Manager at PernixData

Bill Galloway - Pivot3

“The labs at Pivot3 have hundreds of machines. A portion of those are running different Login VSI configurations so we can be constantly configuring with different hardware to see how that affects desktops. Then we tweak the RAM and CPU, and tune so we know how many users we can support.”
