I need some help with roaming profiles on windows 8
I installed w8 on one machine and was testing it while using W7 on other machines.
we have Server 2008 as our domain controllers.
I then had some problems which caused me to delete my roaming profile from both the server and the local machine USERS folder so that it was rebuilt at the next login.
In the process I lost encryption keys, which lead me to Google search for Window 8 roaming profile issues.
I found the link below.
Is anyone actively using both W7 and W8 in an enterprise environment?
If so, did you make separate profiles for W8?
what did you name them?
Profile incompatibility occurs because Windows 8 introduces version information into each successfully loaded user profile. Windows 8 upgrades user profiles that were originally created in Windows 7. Windows 8 also provides a notification to other components and services that enables them to update their Windows 7 settings to Windows 8. This notification enables components and services to own the setting-migration experience. Therefore, Windows 8 is unaware of the incompatibilities that may exist when Windows 8 user profiles roam to a Windows 7 computer.
I'm amazed the MS has introduced such a major incompatibility.
it seems like this will inhibit W8 acceptance.
