    Delprof - The parameter is incorrect.

    Hi,

    I'm using Delprof and getting "The parameter is incorrect". I'm using the remote command and it manages to connect to the machine & finds all the profiles because it lists off each profile and adds "The parameter is incorrect" to the end of it.

    chdir c:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-01
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-02
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-03
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-04
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-05
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-06
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-07
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-08
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-09
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-10
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-11
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-12
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-13
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-14
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-15
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-16
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-17
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-18
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-19

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Cheers

    just tried your commands on my network and it works fine. have you got microsoft's user profile hive cleanup service installed? might be worth a shot!? otherwise, you could use the group policy to "Delete cached copies of roaming profiles".

    is it 2003 / XP you're running?

    Is that the command you are using up there? If so try this

    Code:
    chdir "c:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools"
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-01
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-02
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-03
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-04
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-05
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-06
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-07
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-08
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-09
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-10
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-11
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-12
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-13
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-14

    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-19

    Have you tried running it from another XP machine?

    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-18
    delprof /i /q /c:\\3i07-19
    I put an extra back slash at the end of the path - not sure if this will make any difference when trying to execute delprof so that it knows that delprof is inside of the Tools folder and is not apart of the path ??

    long shot anyway

    I would try and run one of those commands manually and see if you still get the same error

    If you want to run it from a windows 7 machine try turning off the UAC.
