SCCM 2007 - USMT configuration file

Posted on 2011-10-17

I'm using SCCM 2007 r3 with USMT 4. I have a script to not copy over the program files in the USMT process.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<migration urlid="">
   <component type="Documents" context="System">
      <role role="Data">
    <script>MigXmlHelper.GenerateDrivePatterns ("* [*.doc]", "Fixed")</script>
    <script>MigXmlHelper.GenerateDrivePatterns ("* [*.xls]", "Fixed")</script>
    <script>MigXmlHelper.GenerateDrivePatterns ("* [*.ppt]", "Fixed")</script>
                  <pattern type="File">C:\Program Files\* [*]</pattern>
<pattern type="File">C:\Windows\* [*]</pattern>


I do not see how to add the file or what syntax to use? in the task sequence I browse to Capture files and settings, see screen shot.

I just need to run this xml file during the process so that all the program files do not show up after the USMT process. I need to know what to enter in the filename?
