I'm experiencing the exact same problem here - Vista just creates a new
profile called <profilename>.V1 alongside the legacy roaming profile and uses
that instead. No settings are transferred, which is a huge pain.
I'm very confused by this, it seems like a MAJOR issue, unless I'm seriously
missing something. What's going to happen in domain environments with XP and
Vista machines? Two profiles that need to be updated individually? :-S
Can anyone shed any light on this?
