i'dont use SUF at this moment, but i was wondering if it is possible to read out several registry-values en perform some stringmanipulation on these values/variables.

The problem is that Microsoft frustrates template deployment in Office 2K (and probably XP ??) by not writing template and wordstart locations in the registy unless the user is changing the default values by hand. Computing these locations can become quite tiresome in the situation Microsoft Office 2K is installed on windows 2K en roaming profiles is enabled.

The best solution would be a build-in variable that computes the Microsoft Office Installation directories.
