copy user profile

I have batch file that will take user input – login name -  and copy files from profile <loginname> to profile <loginname.machinename>.

The question is – how can I run that batch file before the profile <loginname> loads?

I tried including it in wininit.ini -  no go.

Win.ini – also no go -  it loads after the profile is loaded.

Let me know if you can find a solution. I am sure it is possible -  just not sure how.

It needs to be done programmatically – I can push any file to user’s machine for execution – but I can not trust the sure to do anything other them provide username input.

There is 500 machines so I can’t do it manually either.

Thanks

You shouldn't copy profiles like this they will not have the correct permissions. You can copy profiles by right clicking 'My Computer' and selecting Advanced and click on SETTINGS under User profiles.
Select the profile and then COPY TO another user not forgetting to change the 'Permitted to use' optiion to 'Everyone' so that the permissons are OK.

If you log in as a user and then create a profile that you want to use, you can then log out, log back in as adminisrator and then COPY TO c:\Documents and Settings\Default User and set the permissions as described above. This profile will automatically be copied to all new users when they log on.
