Windows Easy Transfer Cant Open File since MDT 2013 update 1 upgrade RRS feed

  • Question

  • OS is Windows 7 x64 bit.

    Since upgrading from MDT 2013 to 2013 update 1 we are unable to launch any .MIG files.  Error reads: Windows Easy Transfer Cant Open File.

    When I launch a USMT.mig file captured prior to the upgrade, Windows Easy Transfer launches and imports the profile as expected.

    When I launch  USMT.mig file captured after the update 1 upgrade, i get the error.

    Any ideas?

    With thanks

  • So the updated ADK has some fixes for USMT capture. You could try that but, there are some trade offs.  WET may not ever be capable of opening a current version USMT capture.

  • MDT uses USMT. WET is not used by MDT. Unless you are using AIK 3.0 to capture I would not expect Windows 7 WET to open generated MIG files.

  • Hi Ty

    We have always used USMT for hard link migration and also to save user profiles to our network.  We then launch the MIG file successfully with WET which has always worked fine up until update 1.

    For various reasons, we often restore profiles after a PC is refreshed, WET has made that easy. 

    I will do some searching.  What other way would you restore a profile after a machine has been refreshed?

    Thanks in advance

  • MDT post install task sequence would do what you want. Also MDT 2013 update 2 is out. What version of the ADK are you using?
