how to transfer users' homepage with USMT

Posted on 2011-10-06

We are using migapp and miguser w/o any modifications for transferring user settings from Windows XP to Windows 7. For some reason, the users' homepage setting (from IE 7  is not transferring with their settings to IE 8). Everything else seems to be there. Has anyone encountered this or does anyone know how to resolve?

    We need to use usmt. We have over 1500 comptuers/users to migrate and have automated the usmt process thru Altiris. Just not sure why the homepage is being an issue. All other aspects are working great.

    Haven't customized USMT in recent versions much, but perhaps the following might help. It is a single registry value. Perhaps adding it individually?

    Include Files and Settings

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

    Value is ""Start Page".....
