  1. Is there a wild card that can replace the version number in file names in my custom start menu xml? Example: DesktopApplicationID="{7C5A40EF-A0FB-4BFC-874A-C0F2E0B9FA8E}\GPS Utility\gpsu525.exe" /> Something like a gpsu*.exe so I don't have to update it everytime the software version changes? Thanks
  2. Hello A bit more background. I'm trying to get this working in MDT 2013 UD1 deploying Windows 10 Pro x64 1511. I originally found your site when I was trying to deploy a customized Start menu. In that thread you advised me to stop using CopyProfile which brought me here as i was looking for an alternative. I have not tried the pause script you referenced above but I'm not sure that it would help me. I have created a .bat file with about 20 to 30 lines of HCKU settings in the following format. REG ADD "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DeviceAccess\Global\{C1D23ACC-752B-43E5-8448-8D0E519CD6D6}" /v "Value" /t REG_SZ /d "Deny" /f I copy my .bat file to the Admin desktop and pause it right after running (As Admin) REG.EXE LOAD HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Default C:\Users\Default\ntuser.dat. I open the registry and I can see the Default key and I then close registry. I let the .bat run and pause it again prior to REG.EXE UNLOAD HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Default. Open the registry and expand Default. All my imported settings are present. So I finish the script, restart the PC and sign in with a new profile. Many of my new HKCU settings are there but about 1/4 are missing. Examples of missing REG ADD "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Control Panel\Desktop" /v "Wallpaper" /t REG_SZ /d "C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper\MyWallpaper10\IMG_6900.jpg" /f (Still default Windows image) Most all of the Privacy Keys REG ADD "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DeviceAccess\Global\{C1D23ACC-752B-43E5-8448-8D0E519CD6D6}" /v "Value" /t REG_SZ /d "Deny" /f (Still Allow) REG ADD "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DeviceAccess\Global\LooselyCoupled" /v "Value" /t REG_SZ /d "Deny" /f (Still Allow) I'm stumped. CopyProfile was very handy but this would be ok if it worked. By the way... my custom start menu is now working as advertised. Thanks
  3. I did verify that the keys are being created correctly. I ran cmd.exe /c reg.exe load HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\defuser c:\users\default\ntuser.dat and opened defuser in the registry. The just didn't copy to the new profiles for some reason. Thanks in advance!
  4. Hello I am trying to use the process you documented in MDT 2013 Update 1 on Windows 10 1511. I am finding that not all the keys in my import file are being applied to the new profiles. Below are some examples. Privacy ;AccountInfo [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Defuser\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DeviceAccess\Global\{C1D23ACC-752B-43E5-8448-8D0E519CD6D6}] "Value"="Deny" ;Calendar [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Defuser\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DeviceAccess\Global\{D89823BA-7180-4B81-B50C-7E471E6121A3}] "Value"="Deny" ;CallHistory [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Defuser\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DeviceAccess\Global\{8BC668CF-7728-45BD-93F8-CF2B3B41D7AB}] "Value"="Deny" ;Camera [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Defuser\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DeviceAccess\Global\{E5323777-F976-4f5b-9B55-B94699C46E44}] "Value"="Deny" ;Email [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Defuser\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DeviceAccess\Global\{9231CB4C-BF57-4AF3-8C55-FDA7BFCC04C5}] "Value"="Deny" ;Location [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Defuser\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DeviceAccess\Global\{BFA794E4-F964-4FDB-90F6-51056BFE4B44}] "Value"="Deny" ;Messages [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Defuser\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DeviceAccess\Global\{992AFA70-6F47-4148-B3E9-3003349C1548}] "Value"="Deny" ;Microphone [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Defuser\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DeviceAccess\Global\{2EEF81BE-33FA-4800-9670-1CD474972C3F}] "Value"="Deny" ;Names [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Defuser\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DeviceAccess\Global\{C1D23ACC-752B-43E5-8448-8D0E519CD6D6}] "Value"="Deny" ;SyncWithDevices [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Defuser\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DeviceAccess\Global\LooselyCoupled] "Value"="Deny" Edge ;Edge Main Settings [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Defuser\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\Main] "DoNotTrack"=dword:00000001 "HomeButtonEnabled"=dword:00000001 "FormSuggest Passwords"="no" "HomeButtonPage"="http:XXXXXXXXX" ;Edge New Tab [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Defuser\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\ServiceUI] "NewTabPageDisplayOption"=dword:00000002 ;Edge No First Run Page [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Defuser\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\TabbedBrowsing] "NTPFirstRun"=dword:00000001 ;Edge Page Prediction [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Defuser\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\FlipAhead] "FPEnabled"=dword:00000000 Any ideas why these would not get applied while others are successful?
  5. I'm in the same situation. My image is Win10 Pro 10240. My XML works fine on my laptop that was never syspreped. I did use CopyProfile=yes on my image. Any solutions ? Thanks.
