I haven't successfully been able to get LANDesk to use environment variables in the profile migration scripts, ever - although it would be an invaluable tool, should they decide to create that kind of functionality (nudge nudge, wink wink)
I've been trying to do the same thing, actually - and here's what I did in order to grab the Internet Favorites: Set up a File Rule with the source directory being "C:\Docume~1\", including subdirectories. Then the Files to include would be *.htm; *.html; *.url to include all of the internet favorites. This does grab all of internet favorites, but an unfortunate byproduct of this is that it will grab a lot of the cached internet files as well - so if you can clear out the temporary internet files first, that might be a good idea...
But really, that's only a temporary workaround until someone figures out how to teach LANDesk environment variables.
Good answer. This will work well as a workaround, however environment variables would be nice
Perhaps I will submit a development request.

By all means, but in the meantime, there are alternatives.
Something similar should be possible with USMT, and the trick should work in classic OSD as well as provisioning, if you're willing to get cracking with a text editor.
Thanks. Looks like it would take a rocket scientist to do this, but I need to spend some time to understand how the scripts work and how they can be customised, then I'm sure it makes perfect sense even for below genius IQ level admins.
Not being a lawyer, I've seen this utility referenced several different places, but always wondered if you can use it on non-Lenova machines? Basically what are the licensing guidelines. It is better than ldprofile.
