The System Policy Editor enables you to use templates provided with the Office XP Resource Kit to enforce system policies globally for users of Office on a network. By using system policies, an administrator can quickly enforce a user configuration on users' computers when users, groups, or computers log on to the network.
The Microsoft Office policy templates (ADM files) describe all of the policy settings you can set for Office. These ADM files can be used with the System Policy Editor and Group Policy snap-in tools in Microsoft Windows® operating systems to apply policies to users' computers.
Install the System Policy Editor and Templates
The System Policy Editor is automatically installed on your computer when you install the Office Resource Kit (orktools.exe).

The policy templates (ADM files) are installed in the \Windows\INF folder on your computer.
