User Profiles on windows 2000 pro

By lowens ·
Hello
i would like to set up a windows 2000 machine to allow 2 users to log in, and use seperate ini files for application programs. Each user should have use thir own ini when the run the program logged into the machine. For example when this is done logging into a terminal services machine each user has a folder under documents and settings and the ini files are stored in a windows folder under each user. is this posible on a window 200 pro without terminal services

I create a data folder in the hidden
C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\data
I do a custom install to the data folder (you can call it anything u like)
Then the shortcut on the desktop/menu should look somesthing like this
C:\lotus\notes\notes.exe "=C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\data\notes.ini"

this is a sample of what we did to get lotus notes 6.5.3. running with a user that is logged (Win XP) in without any special rights.
Upon logging into a pc the the user profile is created and the data folder in C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\data is automatically copied to the new profile.
Every user then has its own copy of the INI.
