Updated: August  18, 2013

 

Problem: 

Some of my user's after migration find desktop.ini showing on their desktop.

 

Symptoms:

This is because during the migration/copy process hidden properties of desktop.ini are stripped. The users can delete the file.

 

Possible Resolution(s):

Another option it would be for ProfileUnity Admin to create a custom command using "Application Launcher" to delete the file.

 

Steps:

Go to ProfileUnity console, Edit the configuration and go to "Application Launcher"

  • Arguments: /c del "\\Server\share\%username%\desktop\desktop.ini" /q
  • Timing: During Configuration Execution
  • Schedule: Everyday
  • Frequency: Every Logon
