Newbie!   Windows 7 RTM 32bit Enterprise is what I am running specifically.  This issue appears to be on every flavor of Windows 7 of both RC and RTM.   In the Advanced System Settings and USER PROFILES settings, any local or domain user profile has the COPY TO button grayed out.  This has worked in XP, Vista and Windows 7 Beta.  Confirmed from many Windows 7 forums including TechEd that RC and RTM has disabled COPY Profiles!  So the question is how to COPY a local user profile to the Default profile.  I want ALL of the settings/configurations of my BASE user to end up in Default.  All new users will start with the fully configured Default profile.  Just downloaded the profwiz.exe and user guide.  Sorry looked thru forum and tried a couple of profwiz tests and can not seem to find a procedure to copy Local Profile to Default.  Thanks, Vince

Hi Vince,
 
User Profile Manager for Windows Vista allows you to copy an existing profile to create a new default. On the "User Profiles" tab choose "Copy To..." Then check the "Set As Default Profile" check box on the "Copy To" dialog.
User Profile Manager for Windows Vista is still BETA software, but seems to be working fine on Windows 7 Smile

Downloaded User Profile Manager for Windows Vista version 1.06.1020c and installed as admin on win7 ent 32 bit.  created local user called base which is in admin group.  Set gadgets, desktop background, printers, theme, favorites, shortcuts on desktop, Toolbar, IE 8 home screen, Power setting with password off.  base profile was ~300MB in size. Ran DUP and copy to base to DEFAULT.  Appears to copy.  Create new user test6 and add to admin group.  reboot (from shutdown) and log in as test6.  No gadgets, No desktop background, No printers, No theme, No favorites, rest appear intact but DEFAULT was only 7MB in size and test 6 was 22MB in size.  Any suggestions?  Appreciate the help.  Vince

Hi Vince,

We've had chance to do some more testing on Windows 7 (32-bit) and User Profile Manager is running beautifully for us Cool Given that this is Beta software we were expecting some issues.
 
What do you mean by DUP?

Several issues with Win 7 profile copy...

1. The school logo wallpaper doesn't copy with the profile.
2. Google Chrome seems to want to be reinitialized?

Am I missing something?

Thank you for your feedback. As stated above, User Profile Manager is still beta software. A new version will be released in the next few weeks.

I found this solution and wrote a blog post about this issue.

It's possible to enable the "copy to" button. Read more here...

Enable copy to button in windows's 7 user profile settings

It works for me.
