Roaming profiles Windows XP - Windows 7

    Question

  • Hi all,

     

    When upgrading a computer from Windows XP to Windows 7, roaming profile is not laoded correctly.

    Is USMT the only option? What about users that have to log to both operating systems?

  • Hi,

    Roaming profiles for XP are on the server, which are in a v1 format, when a user logs into a Windows 7 machine it creates a v2 format for that account. If USMT won't be your option, you can try the following to check the result.

    Change the users policy to redirect the desktop to a folder on the server and then make that available offline when log off.

    Good Luck.

  • User Profile Migrator will help you move from Windows XP to Windows 7: http://www.sepago.de/d/helge/2010/08/03/user-profile-migrator-released-your-key-to-successful-migrations. This would be a one way translation.

    If you want to allows users to move between operating system versions, take a look at tools such as AppSense Environment Manager, RES PowerFuse or Immidio Flex Profiles.
