Suppress Opt-In and First Run dialogs when launching Office 2013

Posted on by

So a bit of background first.  I’d been given an Office 2013 App-V application to fix.  Each time it was launched the user was prompted with ‘First Run’, ‘Opt-In’ and licensing dialogs.  I needed to suppress these prompts.  This could probably be done via GPO or initially when the application was configured and captured, via the Office Customization Tool.  But since I didn’t want to start all over again I detected the registry settings.  Some I Googled, and some I found myself.  Here they are:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\FirstRun]
"BootedRTM"=dword:00000001
"disablemovie"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\General]
"shownfirstrunoptin"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\PTWatson]
"PTWOptIn"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common]
"qmenable"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Registration]
"AcceptAllEulas"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\General]
"ShownFileFmtPrompt"=dword:00000001
