When using the /admin parameter in Office 2010, trying prevent the "Outlook default mail client" message fails

Upgrading from 2007

I have made a msp with the doployment parameter /Admin, that should change this, but it is not working. It installs with the .msp file, but the message keeps appearing. I also tried reboot, before starting outlook. There seems to be something broken in the admin console

Anybody knows the reg key for this configuration?

I believe that that setting is stored in the currently logged-in user's profile. Therefore, you will need to engineer a method to get the relevant setting (which you can determine very easily easily using ProcMon) into that profile, e.g. using Active Setup.

In the office Customization Tool

In Modify setup properties set

Then in Modify user settings>Microsoft Outlook 2010>Outlook Options>other

Make outlook the default program for email......... Disabled

(Yes it really is set to disabled)
