    Profiles and "New" Ranger

    We are building our first VISTA Images and are finding that the build done as Local Administrator and Domain Default user is not being forced onto the users..

    The Students are using Local Profiles (until next years 7's when the new RAM with Roaming Profiles will take over)

    When the student logs on with Ranger installed they get MASSIVE icons and the wrong graphic settings...

    Any idea how to force this "default" Profile?

    A quick google and I found this -

    • Right click Computer and select Properties
    • Select Advanced System Properties (elevating as required)
    • In the system properties dialog click the Settings button under User Profiles
    • Select the account you want to use as a template
    • Click Copy To
    • Change the "permitted to use" option to Everyone
    • Use the Browse button to select the location of the default profile (C:\Users\Default)
    • Click Ok
    • Click Yes to overwrite the existing default profile


    I cannot try this as I do not have Vista to hand. Please let me know how it goes as I see you're having a few issues deploying Vista

    When you have done that on one, copy the contents of the file to the other computers.
