    Profile Wizard tokens (MSO 2000 SR1-a)

    Can anyone help me with the particular folders etc. specified by the tokens in the atteached ini file? The attached is actually used as an ini, but attachment guidelines caused the need for renaming...

    TIA

    I'm not sure what your question is... Is there any documentation on this file in the Office 2000 Resource Kit?

    Hi Chuck:
    When you are using the Profile Wizard to back up your settings, this ini file tells it what to back up & what not to back up. The explainations, such as they are, are actually in the ini file, so that you can add, subtract or modify the list. For what it's worth, I left mine alone.
    Cheers,

    Jefferson/Phil:

    I admittedly could easily be missing the obvious, but:

    The basic instructions and threads in the KB are similar to:

    Folders and subfolders in the Application Data tree.
    Files in these folders and subfolders are included in the user profile.

    While instruction in the ini itself stipulate:

    Entries must begin with one of the following Folder tokens:
    # <AppData>, <Desktop>, <Favorites>, <NetHood>, <Personal>,
    # <PrintHood>, <ProgramsMenu>, <RecentFiles>, <SendTo>,
    # <StartMenu>, <StartupMenu>, <UserProfile>
    # Subfolder tokens of format <SubFolder_$$$$> can be embedded in lines
    # and are replaced at SAVE time by the registry data found in the $$$$
    # value of HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftOffice9.0CommonGeneral.

    So the immediate question(s) arise: What exactly is/are being designated and included by the tokens? What files and folders are they pointing to?

    And, is there any "easy" way to check and verify what in fact is backed up?

    Hi Chuck:
    If you look in your ini file, the paths to the files that are backed up are there. Also, the registry keys that are backed up are named. Other than that, I'm not sure what your question is. Your ini file, now a text file, contains the list of what's backed up. What specifically are you looking for?

    Phil:

    For instance, the token <Personal> points to...?

    Chuck, <!profile=unkamunka>unkamunka<!/profile> has already answered this question in <post#=310008>post 310008</post#>. I will try to give a more detailed explanation.

    Click Start | Run...
    Type regedit and press Enter.
    The Registry Editor starts.

    Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVe rsionExplorerShell Folders in the left hand pane (the tree view).
    The right hand pane (the list view) will display the values of AppData, Desktop, Personal etc.; they correspond to the values in < > brackets in your .ini file. For example, for me, Personal is Cocuments and SettingsHansVMy Documents, and for you it will probably be Cocuments and SettingsCharles W BillowMy Documents.

    Next, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOffice9.0CommonG eneral in the left hand pane.
    The items in your ini file of the form <subfolder_nnnn> correspond to values named nnnn in the right hand pane, for example <SubFolder_RecentFiles> corresponds to the value named RecentFiles.

    What happens is that these tokens are replaced by the values looked up in the registry locations I mentioned above. For example:

    <AppData>MicrosoftExcel<SubFolder_Xlstart>*.*

    will become

    Cocuments and SettingsHansVApplication DataMicrosoftExcelXLStart

    for me.

    Hans:

    I thank you, and apologize to unkamunka... I was obviously out to lunch when I read the reply(s).

    That's what I needed...

    Thanks again...

    Chuck
