Outlook 2007 : /importprf always triggers the configuration wizard ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are bout to migrate to an outsourced Exchange server. Creating a new profile in OL2007 for a created account on the Exchange server, through autodiscovery, takes 3 minutes. I am trying to speed up this time using profiles, planning to start from one clean profile, copying it everywhere, and then only changing the user's account.

    As a test, I exported a profile with OCT, deleted it, and tried to import it back. But each time I run Outlook /importprf c:\tmp\tstpw4.prf, it starts the OL configuration wizard. If I configure that it requests for a profile at startup (I have several profiles for test purposes) it starts with my tstpw4 profile, but still goes on with the configuration wizard; if I interrupt it, I can see that it created an empty profile "tstpw4".

    I don't have a clue of why this happens. Anybody has a hint ?

    Best regards

    R. Grasso
