Moving a Profile from Workgroup to a Domain

You've been using a workgroup setup and now are moving to a Domain setup. The users have desktop settings and you'd like to keep these when they login as a domain user but the settings are lost.


Log in with the local userID on the machine, open REGEDIT.EXE, select the \HKey_Current_Uuser key, and choose Registry|Export registry. The resulting .reg file can then be used by the user after he logs in to his domain account, just dbl-clicking on it. That will transfer the settings. Make sure he has full rights to his \HKey_Current_User key of the registry
