  1. We're fine with backing up themes, wallpapers and other display customizations (DPI, window color & appearance etc.) because it gives us something to go back to or restore if its truly need. However, we do not want to restore the aforementioned on the destination PC by default. I must be doing something wrong and I can't figure out what and need some help. I've read some great write ups on the subject: USMT Custom XML the Free and Easy Way USMT 4.0 Custom Sample - Blocking Wallpaper and Theme Migration from Windows Vista and Windows 7 Blocking Wallpaper Migration with USMT (or: you are a jerk) and used part of their example XML in my own, but everything (wallpaper, themes and other display customizations) is still coming over. Now I'm trying to use MigXmlHelper.DestinationPriority() but really its just a last ditch effort. From an elevated command prompt in C:\USMT\amd64\, I'm executing: scanstate.exe E:\USMTBackup /config:nothemeuiconfig.xml /i:MigApp.xml /i:MigDocs.xml /i:MigUser.xml /i:unconditionalexclusions.xml /i:blockwallpaperandthemev3.xml /i:getlocalpsts.xml /i:inclusions.xml /ui:domain1\user1 /ue:*\* /vsc /c /o /nocompress /localonly /v:13 /l:\\path\to\scanstate.log

ID="http://www.microsoft.com/migration/1.0/migxmlext/cmi/microsoft-windows-themeui/microsoft-windows-themeui/settings"/> To this: <component displayname="Microsoft-Windows-themeui" migrate="no" ID="http://www.microsoft.com/migration/1.0/migxmlext/cmi/microsoft-windows-themeui/microsoft-windows-themeui/settings"/> Opened a case with Microsoft, sent them: the XML's I'm using the command I used to generate the config.xml the command I used for scanstate the log files generated by scanstate the command I used for loadstate the log files generated by loadstate Summary result of the MS case: After much review & scrutiny, the command line and XML files are syntactically correct and rules are sound. The articles I referenced in the ticket are indeed old and speak of an older version of USMT, so I can accept the possibility that something may have changed between USMT versions that render those suggested rules & instructions invalid. Despite using unconditionalExclude to unconditionally globally exclude objects, something else is trumping that rule, and there’s no way around that. Even using MigXmlHelper.DestinationPrioity() won’t help us here because, like above, something else trumps that rule, and there’s no way around that. The last proposed suggestion is to disable the shmig component, which may or may not break or otherwise adversely affect the backup/restore of other things. (This may be too difficult to detect easily or in initial testing and the uncertainty doesn’t give us confidence problems won’t arise as a result of this change. Also, Ned Pyle's post says NOT to, but then again that's an old post.) Is this no longer possible or am I'm just doing it wrong?
