Hi

Im testing USMT for our WIN 7 to WIN 10 project and i see that its part of the WAIK which is fine, and ive managed to backup user profiles.  However how do i install USMT or restore the USMT backup to client machines that dont have USMT installed?

I used this as a reference: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/itpro/windows/deploy/usmt-migrate-user-accounts

Thanks

All you will need to do is have the USMT files on a shared location on your network.  Point to that share and run the loadstate command from the workstation with the proper parameters and it should load the backed up data on that workstation.

Thats done.  Where is loadstate on WIn10 without having to install WAIK?

It's not.  Just map a drive from Win10 to the share on your network where the loadstate is located.  Then run.

loadstate and scanstate should be in the same location.

Why not?  Just map the drive when logged in as "admin".  As an admin, you should be able to manually map the drive.

I assume running cmd as admin is local admin, as i cant see the mapped drive.  Running cmd normal mode loadstate moans it needs to be in admin

You're logged into the workstation as admin and have mapped the drive?

You need to map the drive manually.

Local admin?  No (as this wont allow me to map the required drive (as it needs admin permission)).
Domain admin (me) yes, but running cmd as admin (assume this then points this as a local admin account) doesn't work either (no drive showing).
