    Office Profile Wizard (2007)

    I had to build a new system and decided I would help myself by using the Office Profile Wizard to back up my old Office2007 settings and restore them on the new build.

    But this didn't work. Even though the backup was taken and I restored the OPS file without any error messages, no changes were made to the new Office install and I had to manually set every option in every Office application all over again. Sigh.

    I don't think the old OPW works with Office 2007 apps. Is there a new version? I couldn't locate anything and am unsure if there have been any updates since the last version which was part of the Office 2003 Resource kit

    Microsoft hasn't released a profile wizard for Office 2007.

    However, if you have Windows Vista, you can use Windows Easy Transfer to transfer files and settings (not just those for Office) from another PC running Windows XP or Windows Vista.

    Do you know where the new office profile download is? I couldn't find it.

    See Getting started with the 2007 Office Resource Kit. Unfortunately, it appears that there are no downloadable tools available.

    Right. So therefore, there is nothing one can run that would save & export Office 2007 settings? And the 2003 version does not work with Office 2007.
