Interviews with CIOs, IT professionals and consultants show that user profile compatibility is among the most critical aspects in Windows 7 migration projects. Unfortunately, Windows XP stores user profiles in a different way than Windows 7. This may have some impact on centrally stored personal desktop and application settings in corporate IT environments. Immidio published a whitepaper describing how Flex Profiles uses profile segmentation that ideally suited to making user profiles cross-platform compatible. This whitepaper is particularly targeted at Windows XP to Windows 7 migration projects and at side-by-side scenarios using multiple versions of Windows simultaneously.
Immidio Flex Profiles is today’s most popular profile management product implementing profile segmentation separating and decoupling sets of application and desktop settings. Segmented profiles work on all Windows versions that are officially supported by Microsoft, both 32 bit and 64 bit. The general idea behind this concept is using a pre-configured base profile (e.g. default, local or mandatory profile) for common base settings and store individual system or application settings in associated individual files or archives.
