Importing registry settings for use with outlook 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • heres the situation,

    We are testing outlook virtualized, and we have an impending refresh of our users PC's. They will be moving from XP to 7.

    I scripted a solution to backup all of our users PST's to a server. And in that script i also have it export all of the users current outlook settings to a .reg file.

    If i load those registry settings onto the windows 7 machine, virtual outlook doesnt see the local entries.

    Is there a way to have virtual outlook look at the machines local registry, or a way to import those registry entries into the users virtual registry?

    Thanks in advance
    -Chris

  • Hello,

    See this for script-possibilities;

    What happens is that there probably is a key-virtualized set to not merge with the local key and has overriding values that already exist in the bubble...

  • If you are open for commercial solutions, some "Profile Management" or "Profile Virtualization" solutions might be an option.
    I know from AppSense and Immidio that they do support classical and virtual setting migrations.

  • to follow up on this, we ended up just going with a non virtual office package as we had come across one too many issues. I wrote a script to export profile in reg then import it on new win7 machine.


    Hopefully when we move to office2010 we wont have to re-visit this issue :P.
