DefProf

DefProf updates the Default Windows User Profile with the documents and settings from another user profile that you specify. You can use DefProf on Windows 7 where the "Copy To" button is greyed out in the "User Profiles" dialog box. For more details click here.

Installation

Just copy DefProf onto your executable path, and type "defprof". You must have administrative privileges.

Usage

Usage: defprof profile_folder_name

 

Let’s say you use a ‘setup’ user account to create a user profile that you want everyone logging onto a machine to inherit. When you logon as setup, Windows creates a C:\Users\setup profile folder. To make ‘setup’ the default profile, you just type defprof setup at a command prompt.

 

DefProf 1.5 adds support for Windows 8.

Windows 2000 Support

User Profile Wizard no longer supports the migration of Windows 2000 workstations. If you need to migrate a Windows 2000 machine, download this build of Profwiz.exe. Customers who need to automate the migration of Windows 2000 workstations should email support@ForensiT.com

Utility

LogMon

LogMon monitors log files in real time in a console window. LogMon was written for a customer who needed to watch the progress of an automated User Profile Wizard workstation migration. The download file includes an example script that includes LogMon in a standard User Profile Wizard "Deployment Kit" generated vbscript. However, LogMon can be used to monitor any text based log file.

Installation

Just copy the LogMon.exe file onto your executable path, and type "logmon".

Usage

Usage: logmon logfile


Here logfile is the path to the log file you want to monitor. LogMon supports ANSI, Unicode (UTF-16 little endian) and UTF-8 encoded log files.

Utility

Shutdown

Yes! It's our very own version of the Windows shutdown utility.

 

If you run a migration script from a Group Policy, the default "Deployment Kit" generated script will fail to reboot the machine. The reason is that the script is run in a security context that does not have the privileges needed. Customers who tried to run the Windows shutdown utility reported the same issue. To get around the problem we created our own version that explicitly acquires the necessary privileges. The download includes an example script.
