creation of user profile upon an existing profile


Recommended Posts

is there any way to create a windows vista user profile on top of an existing profile. ex. user name is myUser and has never been logged in thus not having any folder in C:\Users. i manualy create or use an existing folder named myUser which i copy to C:\User. i logg off an when i log on with myUser he gets the settings from that folder thus not creating another profile folder named myUser.computername.

Nope, it doesn't work that way. If you want to pre-define profile settings I would recommend creating a local account and login with that account. Once you have everything set reboot (to release any clinging file locks) and log in w/an admin account. Copy that profile (from the User Profiles section on the Advanced tab in System Properties) to C:\Users\Default and use Everyone for 'Permitted to use' and now all new logins will get the modified profile.
