If you are developing with RMS you often need to run Office programs in a PreProduction hierarchy.
Many articles have been written on how to set up a PreProduction environment.
A nice article on how to setup Office 2007 in a PreProduction env can be found >here<

I have heard rumors that some customers did not instantly upgrade to the new and shiny Office 2007 and still use the old office 2003, and here is a way on setting it up:

  1. get the PreProduction keys and the genmanifest tool

  2. create a MCF file for the application: You will need the MSO.DLL, OLE32.DLL and of course winword.exe and msdrm.dll:
    AUTO-GUID
    "C:\\projects\\PreProductionKeys\\ISVTier5AppSigningPrivKey.dat"
    
    MODULELIST
        REQ     "%PROGRAMFILES%\\Microsoft Office\\OFFICE11\\winword.exe"
        REQ     "%COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\\Microsoft Shared\\office11\\mso.dll"  
        req NOHASH "%Windowsdir%\\system32\\ole32.dll"  
        opt     "%WINDIR%\\system32\\msdrm.dll"
    
    
    POLICYLIST
        INCLUSION
            PUBLICKEY "C:\\projects\\PreProductionKeys\\ISVTier5AppSigningPubKey.dat"
        EXCLUSION
    (be sure to change the hard-coded path to fit your needs)

  3. create a backup of the XML files in your office installation (located at "%PROGRAMFILES%\\Microsoft Office\\OFFICE11")

  4. run the manifest tool:
    genmanifest -chain "ISVTier5AppSignSDK_Client.xml" WinWord_pre_prod.mcf WRDPRTID.XML
