    Posted: 25 Mar 2009 at 11:42pm

I would appreciate if someone could assist me with moving a non-roaming profile for a domain user account to another PC. I am using the free download of Profile Wizard. None of our domain users have roaming profiles.

So I have a domain account JohnDoe on workstation1 and I want to move his profile to workstation2. He has never logged onto to workstation2 before.

I run ProfWiz on workstation1 and select Local Computer then untick Join Domain and Set As Default Logon. I type JohnDoe in the Enter the Account Name box and click Next. I then select mydomain\JohnDoe from the stored profiles and click Next. I'm told migration is successful but how do I get this profile onto workstation2????

Alternatively I logon to workstation2 as an Administrator and run ProfWiz. This time I select Another Computer and browse to workstation1. I follow the same steps as above for JohnDoe but after finishing the migration is advises it was successful on workstation1 - how do I get this profile on workstation2???

It seems ProfWiz can only migrate one profile to another on the same PC, I want to move a profile from one PC to another PC - can this tool do this, and if so how?

Any assistance appreciated.

Profwiz is not designed to move profiles between computers. You need the Transfer Wizard
