Using %USERPROFILE% variable with File Synchronization

02/09/2017 1652 views
I love the idea of using File Synchronization across our domain to set default themes for powerpoint, however I am having trouble getting File Synchronization to place these files where I want them. 

I have tried:

  • %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates\Document Themes
  • C:\Users\%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates\Document Themes
  • C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates\Document Themes
Neither of these seems to work. Kace usually tries to stick the file in : C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile

Can anyone please help me get this working using File Synchronization?

The K1000 client runs in the system context, so %userprofile% doesn't apply to the currently logged in user. Short answer, using file synchronization won't work for this purpose.

  • So, how would you get a file in to all user profiles using File Sync then?
    • I wouldn't. I would probably write a script that uses a foreach loop over the users folder and copies the file.
