So I am attempting to copy a User Profile to the default profile. I am using WinSpy++ to enable the disabled "Copy To" button - this process works on a stock laptop I have here.
However, this does not work in a customised image I have with a fair amount of registry settings changed and policies applied. Additionally, I should be able to copy the default profile over another profile regardless, but I cannot.
The Application Event log lists this:
Error Instrument: ProcessName: systempropertiesadvanced.exe WindowTitle: Copy To MsgCaption: Confirm Copy MsgText: C:\Users\username\Desktop\test already exists. The current contents of this directory or this file will be deleted during this operation. Are you sure you want to continue? CallerModuleName: unknown BaseAddr: 0XFFFFFFFF ImageSize: 0XFFFFFFFF ReturnAddr: 0X00000001
It is the contents of the popup that should show up when I click OK on the copy to dialog... before the profile copy is actually performed.
I intend to diff the registry settings between a known working system and this system... but it is a lot to wade through.
Additionally... The image it does not work on is a Windows Standard Embedded 7 install and after testing it doesn't work even with a mostly clean install so it could be something missing from the installation. I also noticed there are other pop up type messages not displaying (I noticed them in the event logs)
The Event ID is 1072
