  2. Just add the .v2 extension to the old XP roaming profile folder and have the user log into the Vista or WIndows 7 machine. Done. The new profile is roughly 10% bigger, but it's simple and you can script it to do the whole server.

  3. I dont understand this, THIS IS A UPGRADE !!!!!
    What if you have a old pc with your profile on it and you want to have that profile on your NEW W7 pc(new hardware).
    Back in the good old days you could copy your profile and past it in the new doc&settings and voila you got your profile on your new pc.(in a domain)

    This does NOT work for Window 7

    Does anyone know how to get your profile from a xp to a w7 so old hardware to new hardware????

    • Well, this User State Migration tool mentioned in this post is exactly what you need.

      Or, you can use easy transfer to migrate the profile as well. http://www.windows7hacker.com/index.php/2009/08/how-to-using-easy-transfer-to-migrate-data-between-xp-vista-windows-7/.

      Note that there is no upgrade path from XP to Windows 7, nor the user profile structure looks the same. So if you want to use your old user profile these are the two easy options.

      Cheers.
