I've used Transwiz successfully: http://www.forensit.com/move-computer.html. You can use the free version.
Basically, you:
1. Export the profile to a file. I used an external drive. A network drive would also work.
1a. Repeat exporting other profiles at this step. Note: If you have many profiles, Transwiz has a Command-line interface to automate transfers
2. Import the profile on the target station.
3. Logon the user.
