Q

Why does Office 2000 always run new profile setup?

I installed Office 2000 on my Windows 2000/XP workstations from a drive located on my Win2000 server. I have no problem on most of the computers, but on some of them, each time I run one of the Office products, it goes through the setup process for a new profile every time. Usually, once you set it up for a user, you don't have to set it up again on that machine. Can you help me figure out what's going on here?
Office is designed to configure itself for each user that runs it. This is just part of its normal behavior -- it sees a different local user each time it's run, and configures itself appropriately for that local machine's users.
