I am looking for an easier to way to move profiles from one account to another on a computer. Currently, I use go to System Properties -> User Profiles -> Copy To to copy over the old profile over to the new profile. While this is somewhat effective, I have problems with a lot of programs migrating correctly including WordPerfect 12, Netscape Mail, Eudora, Outlook 2000, and a few others. I end up checking (and fixing if necesssary) these programs after I copy the profile which is very time consuming. Is there an easier way to do this?
It seems to me if you have the following profiles:
Documents and Settings\olduser
Documents and Settings\newuser
You could just set newuser's profile folder to Documents and Settings\olduser(perhaps a registry tweak) and that would be the fastest way to move the olduser profile to the new user.
