Specifies the location of Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 family profiles.

Syntax ProfilesDir = path_to_profile_folder

Value path_to_profile_folder

Default Value "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Documents and Settings"


ProfilesDir = "%SYSTEMROOT%\Profiles"

Comments This entry is useful if you require new installations to use the same profile folder as Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000. This entry is valid only on clean installations of Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 family. Setup ignores this entry during upgrades.

The specified directory can contain an environment variable such as %SYSTEMDRIVE% or %SYSTEMROOT%. Enclose path_to_profile_folder in quotation marks if it is a long file name or if it contains an environment variable.
