I appreciate that, but we do not use landesk to push images, and that doesn't really help the computers already "out there"

Read the note:
Note: You can use this custom profile on other Windows XP-based computers by copying the profile you saved in C:\Documents and Settings\Default User to the same folder on a different computer.
Multiple ways to do this in LANDesk. Zip up the contents and distribute it through software distribution, provisioning, osd, etc..
Ahh, sorry for the misunderstanding
That is actually the method we currently use.
You could try using ldprofileui or usmt. I don't think either one of these capture the default user profile (I know landesk does not), but if the profile is not the default user profile either one should work.
Nice GUI so you don't have to suffer with CLI stuff good stuff.
Maybe LANDesk will finally pump up ldprofile, kill ldprofile, or create a nice gui wrapper for USMT.
Fantastic, I'll send that to the powers-that-be.
So essentially the answer sounds like no, Landesk can't copy one profile from one machine to another profile on a separate machine? Oh well!
It can using provisioning or software distribution using usmt see usmt command line option. /ui: LANDesk has builtin profile migration ldprofile but it does all accounts. There used to be a ldrpfileui tool you could run to select single users, not sure if it exists or is supported anymore.
Actually I think I was able to combine some files and get ldprofileui to work with 8.8 and backup one user account. However, I personally would pursue usmt rather ldprofile. I you want to know how to run ldprofileui, let me know.

Also, if you're using the TVT version you've got access to Lenovo SMA... it's a really nice tool for this, I use it for rebuilding and migrating my own systems. If you don't have that, USMT is the next best thing.
