Have a laptop here and I want to put it on our domain, this is going to change the user profile. Can transfer stuff across like favorites, email, doc's etc but I am unsure how iTunes will handle a transfer across profiles. Anyone achieved this? If so what method did you use?

You can try CopyTrans TuneSwift. It is free up to 15 March 2011.

Details are in the link below.

I have not tried to use the above software. But, basically, it should work like backup and restore and the steps are as follows:-

1. Logon as local admin and Install CopyTrans TuneSwift and backup the itune library to an external USB drive or network drive;
2. Logon as domain admin to install CopyTrans TuneSwift;
3. Logon as domain user to run CopyTrans TuneSwift and restore the itune library from the external USB drive or network drive.

After the migration, you may need to authorize iTune under the new domain user profile before you de-authorize iTune under the old lcoal admin user profile.

Jackieman - not sure if you are aware but the link you have posted appears to have a link to something to illegally register the program ? you should be aware of EE's stance on illegal solutions...
