I have a Win XP user I want to use a copy of someone elses profile. The source profile a local account on a system and I am moving the profile to another system as a local profile. When I tried this last, I gave full permissions to the target user for the imported profile contents. However, upon login, the user received the DEFAULT profile, instead. Other than file-level permissions, is there something else I need to do to allow this imported profile to be read by the target user's local account?
Thanks!
