    Posted: 18 Sep 2014 at 4:32am
Hi,

I'm using Forensit deployement kit (version pro 3.7.5038.9917) and after migration, when the user open his session, the launch session process stop at  "Processing windows store Apps..."
Only one solution : reboot the computer
After reboot, session is open normaly but I lost file association and when I change file association there are no effect :-/
The file association is link to the profile (and windows store configuration ???) so I think that this information can't be write into user profile but I'm not sure.

I've migrated 3 computer at this moment and I've this problem for all :-/

Could you help me please ?
Thank you

Hi,

User Profile Wizard 3.8 has updates for the handling of Windows Store Apps, so the first thing to do is download the new version.

In Windows 8, a user's choice for file associations is encrypted. As a result, file association choices are not migrated. However, the user should of course be able to re-associate file extensions after the migration.

Thank you for the information. We will take a look. Are you using the Personal Edition?

If you compare a clean install of Windows 8.1 which has a brand new profile created by Windows (not migrated at all) you will see that the permissions in your screenshot above are set correctly. The user account inherits full access to the “UserChoice” registry key from the parent registry key(s) but Windows adds a Deny Access Control Entry (ACE) on the ACL of the “UserChoice” registry key to deny “Set Value” access. (The scope is “This Key Only”.)  Again, we think this is a Windows 8 security measure.

In fact, User Profile Wizard does not replicate this Deny ACE when it migrates the profile, so the new user account ends up with greater access to the “UserChoice” registry key because it just inherits the full permissions.

Could you post instructions for reproducing the file association issue?

As I haven't problem with the initial profil I haven't check the permission before the migration.
But for my last test, on a vm freshly installed and put into domain A :
- open a session with user account into domain A
- changing file association on txt file (use wordpad in place of notepad) ==> change are OK
- remote migration to domain B
- open session of migrated user
- changing file association ==> failed

I don't make anything else.
An idea ?
Thank you

We cannot reproduce the problem by following these steps. After the migration, the file association for .txt files reverts to notepad (the default) but we can change this to wordpad and the new association is correctly stored by Windows.

There must be be some other factor involved to cause the problem. We will continue to investigate.
