I came across a problem related to some tweaks/settings in MS Office, OCX registration etc.. Older users (profiles) on Windows 2003 TS have no problem opening databases in MS Access, new user names can't open them due to misconfiguration. all users are connecting via RDP with 2003 TS.

Is there a way to duplicate 'old_user' profile to 'new_user' including local profile and registry settings? I can't get it to work since most of required changes were never documented, it'll take really long time trying to find out what needs to be set.

Appreciate any help.
