After upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 Home my (local) user profile seems to be broken.
So I want to create a new local profile but using the old user name.
Therefore, I renamed the existing user profile (appended
_Win7), renamed the user directory and changed the
ProfileImagePath in the registry (
The profile seems to run fine under the new name (despite the things that were already broken before the renaming).
Now the problem: Windows doesn't let me create a new local user profile using the old profile's name. The error message is (translated from German): Enter a different user name.
How can I create a new profile using a former profile's name?
