A bit of Office 2010 file block editing
So in rolling out the Office 2010 program I realized I have some really old doc files that we've reused and apparently Office 2010 now sees these as "insecure". Well the problem is they don't really make it too easy for me to figure out exactly what in the doc it doesn't like.
Microsoft Office 2010 File Compatibility - Microsoft Office 2010 Engineering - Site Home - TechNet Blogs:
Nice but man I wish that was a lot more GUI friendly than it is.
So in the meantime until I figure out what exactly in the Word doc 2010 doesn't like I'm downloading the 2010 adm files and editing up so that the folder these files are at is seen as a trusted location and that we're allowed to open these docs throughout the network.
It helps if you manually do it first on a workstation (File, Options, Security, Trust center) so that you understand how it looks on the workstation and what you are doing on the server.
File type block settings:
So open up the group policy management console on your server and build a new group policy item:
Just like our 2007 era blog post (see http://msmvps.com/blogs/bradley/archive/2007/07/14/default-save-as-doc-and-xls.aspx ) we need to add our 2010 era templates.
Download them from here: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=18968
And run the exe to upzip the adm files and plop them on the network were you can browse and insert them.
We insert the 2010 adm files
The we set up the trusted location on the network and then adjust the File block settings to allow the files.
