    There was a thread on here about it I think, but I believe that linked solution on petri is the method I used. Working fine with IE8, Windows 7 etc.

    I setup a loop back policy for my windows 7 machines and set the profile option in Group Policies for that machine group. This may only work for me because I do not use the profile path option in AD for XP or Windows 7.

    So let me get this right. I go into the User account in AD and just type in the profile path: staffuser

    and this will serve both my staffuser.man and staffuser.man.v2 ?

    I've tried that before typing staffuser.man but when I go to log into a windows 7 machine it complains. Must be missing something..

    I've just set ours up for testing and so far it seems to be working as it should.

    Create (or use existing) a folder where your profiles are currently. eg mandatory-profile
    Into that folder copy the existing mandatory profile eg staff.man and rename it to staff.man.v2
    In the same folder place another copy of the staff.man profile.
    In AD point the user to server\profiles\mandatory-profile\staff.man

    This should allow users to log into both XP and Win 7 without problems.

    Have you actually created the .man.v2 profile path in your network profiles location, and is it definitely working? There are several methods for making this profile - the MS approved route involves sysprep and the default profile.
