Hi,
I have used DEFPROF in my image build to copy my Setup profile over to default users. This all went OK, installed the AppX Management Service etc. I’ve then captured the image, and when I deploy it all works fine. So what’s the problem…
This is a base image on which other technicians install software for creating other builds. The problem is that when they run DEFPROF to copy the Setup profile over and then login as another user, (either on the domain or off it) the search function does not work.

I’ve tried restarting services, reinstalling the AppX Management Service, re-running the indexing service, PowerShell command to re-provision the built in apps, but all to no avail. The search will sometimes find the odd file, but not others. For instance typing Word will find Wordpad but not MS Word.

Everything works fine for the first BASE image build, but it seems running DEFPROF a second time breaks the search.
Has anyone else had this issue or any suggestions as to how I could fix it?

Thanks for any help.
Rab

Same problem, but I've found workaround, you need to make the original profile readable. Something like this works for me :
icacls c:\users\originalprofile /grant Everyone:(OI)(CI)RX /T


The problem with that though, is that new programs installed after the fact will not show up in search. The search in Classic Start works fine though.

I think I found something, if you run:


del /F /Q C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WebCacheLock.dat
del /F /Q C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache\*.*
del /F /Q C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\*.*


in addition to :


icacls c:\users\originalprofile /grant Everyone:(OI)(CI)RX /T


Then searching in new profiles works, and new apps show up as well.
