You can also use the built-in profile copy tool once you have created the users profile.

1. Create the local user account and log in then reboot.
2. log-in as an administrator
3. Go to Control Panel>System>Advanced>Settings(User Profile)
4. Select the source profile and select copy to
5. Specify the directory of the new users profile and change the permitted to use to the new user.
