don't want to migrate Pinned items with USMT 4 ? no problem

Recommended Posts

another quick USMT post, if you want to avoid your Pinned items (for example Microsoft Office Outlook) from being migrated in a Win7 to Win7 migration, then include the following in a custom XML file as explained in this post, why do you want to do this, well if you don't you just might see Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 (2) as your pinned item name (for example) in the taskbar.


  <component type="Documents" context="user">
	<displayName _locID="miguser.User_Exclusions">User Exclusions</displayName>
	<role role="Data">
					<!-- exclude items pinned on the taskbar otherwise it'll cause the same items to show up as (2) desktop-->  

					<pattern type="File">%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar\* [*.lnk]</pattern>



and that's probably a good idea looking at my current Windows 7 taskbar the following items are pinned


Directory of C:\Users\niall\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quic

k Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar
