User Profile Wizard Release 24
Simple. Scalable. Low cost
User Profile Wizard 24 is the latest version of ForensiT's powerful workstation migration tool. User Profile Wizard will migrate your current user profile to your new user account so that you can keep all your existing data and settings.

Large-scale migration made easy
User Profile Wizard has been used to automatically migrate millions of workstations to new domains. It can be used to migrate workstations to a new domain from any existing Windows network; it can join standalone computers to a domain for the first time, or migrate workstations from a domain back to a workgroup; it can also migrate user profiles to Azure AD user accounts.

No need to lose personal data and settings
A User Profile is where Windows stores your stuff. Normally, when you change your user account Windows will create a new profile for you, and you lose all your data and settings - your “Documents”, “Pictures” and “Music” files and all the other information that makes your computer personal to you, like your desktop wallpaper, Internet favorites and the lists of documents you've recently opened.

User Profile Wizard is an easy-to-use migration tool that means this doesn’t need to happen – you can simply migrate your original profile to your new user account. User Profile Wizard does not move, copy or delete any data. Instead it configures the profile “in place” so that it can be used by your new user account. This makes the process both very fast and very safe.

With the User Profile Wizard Deployment Kit you can build a scalable, enterprise solution to automatically migrate tens of thousands of workstations.

Migrates all user profile data and settings on Windows 10 and Windows 7
Automatically joins a machine to a new domain
Migrates profiles to Azure AD
Supports domain migrations over a VPN
Supports all Active Directory and Samba domains
Migrates from a domain back to a workgroup
Includes Enterprise strength scripting support
Supports push migrations of remote machines
Tried and trusted - over 2.5 million licenses sold

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Er… First, what ever happened to version 3.20?
Well, up to now we have been dutifully following Microsoft’s version numbering system. Unfortunately, this has lead to some confusion along the lines of I’m using version 3.8, but I see the current release is version 3.19, how come the current version number is lower than my version? To which the answer was the latest version is Three-Nineteen, not Three-One-Nine. But you know what? Life’s too short, so we have switched to the Firefox idea of just numbering releases. Happy?

So what’s new?
The biggest change is that User Profile Wizard has switched to using PowerShell scripting; vbscripts are no more. The software comes with some Pre-Installed PowerShell scripts, suitable for most occasions, but you can of course BYOS. (Bring Your Own Script.)

Along with PowerShell, the Deployment Kit organizes your deployment files in a slightly different way, collecting your deployment files in a Project folder so they are easier to manage.

To further enhance what can be done with scripting, Profwiz.exe supports a new /SOURCEPROFILE command line parameter that enables you to directly specify the profile folder you want to migrate. This enables you to avoid problems caused by Windows being unable to resolve a user account SID to a user account name: for example if you a migrating from Azure AD. The Pre-Installed Migrate-BySid.ps1 script uses this new parameter.

Where are you going with this?
Our intention now is to concentrate on command-line migrations using PowerShell. Depending on your feedback User Profile Wizard may become a command-line only tool in future.

This package has no dependencies.
