Migration Tool working 1 in 10 times

We are using ZENWorks Personality Migration tool version 11.0.0.64873 and we are finding it quite buggy.

If something is left open, you can't successfully have the application close that app for you. You have to close ZPM, close the app and start ZPM all over again. The most annoying glitch is that it gets to 99% when storing to a file and just never finishes.

We are using Windows XP primarily, although there are some VISTA machines in the mix.
Is anyone else having these problems? Are we missing something or is this version of the product just a bit buggy?
Thanks
Eric.

Good afternoon you're not alone in your frustrations with the personality migration product, we are seeing pretty much the same thing. We are trying to tweak the migration process, but we are seeing some issues with the "networking" and "printer" migrations section(s), I have been looking for any updates with the personality program but so far no joy. We are using Windows XPSP2 or SP3 as our base migration machines.

Re: Migration Tool working 1 in 10 times

I'm having very very similar problems with it. XP to XP often will get to 99% then not finish. XP to Windows 7 so far, has not worked at all. THE XP machine will start the transfer of data while the Windows 7 (64-bit) machine crashes ZPM. We really liked the Zen 7 version which would store the data to a file so that you could go grab it when you were ready. This direct method is real quirky. Too bad, cause the product is very much needed in our environment
