How can I know the folder of my users's profiles ? I must do a backup of the Microsoft Word normal.dot file in the folder :

C:\Documents and Settings\[user account]\Application Data\Microsoft\Modèles\Normal.dot

[user account] is my problem, it should be @UserId, but in some case it's [user account].000 or [user account].domain

I can't find a macro for the profile folder, is there one that I missed or a work around ?

There is no macro for these folders in kix. Windows has one and it's is called %userprofile% you can use this in your kix scripts.

There is also a registry key that hold the location of these folders.
