Needing to change Microsoft Office 2010 or Office 2013 advanced word options through an agent procedure!!!!

  • To all,

    I am needing to create an agent procedure that will enable a certain setting under File>Word Options>Advanced section named 'Disable hardware graphics acceleration' for either office 2010 and/or 2013.

    Does anyone know if this is possible through an Agent procedure? If so, does anyone have an example of their script that can be uploaded?

    I have included the screenshot of the option that needs to be enabled.

  • Hi  

    The below article shows how you can do it with a registry key change.

    You can use the set registry key step in agent procedure to perform the change and include a reboot action in the AP.

    Hope this helps.

    Best,

    Nicolas

  • here is a script for you for 2010 or 2013.  It was a little tricky, because in my testing, Office 2010 does not use the same key as 2013.

    Here is the link from our ClubMSP site.  I made it a free download.  clubmsp.com/.../office-2013-disable-hardware-acceleration-kaseya-script

    PS. Tested on 64-bit 2010 and 2013.  I didn't have a 32-bit system to test, so if you have some out there, please test first.



    Clarified that script worked with both 2010 AND 2013
