has anyone ever gotten the copyprofile option in sysprep to work for all shortcuts / settings?
I have hardware independant images that I build on virtual machines and then sysprep after they've been snapshot.
the way I have them built is
- standard os install
- standard software suite
- temporary admin account used for the build (all software installed under that user)
- desktop tweaks applied to default administrator and to the temp admin user
- after completed and qa'd I run sysprep /audit to inject the drivers.
- upon reboot I then run sysprep /generalize etc etc.
so shouldn't all profile settings from the temp admin user be copied to the default user account and any others?

is there a better way of doing this to assure all settings get applied?

Check to see where those missing shortcuts are prior to copyprofile. For example, do they exist only on the Administrator Desktop?

Also, you may want to look at the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit for your deployments. There is no need to inject drivers and have different images for various models of computer. MDT can control driver installations during the deployment. It can also install software after Windows is installed, so if the program you are installing releases a new version, you don't have to re-create your image. Simply change the task in MDT and the newer version will install instead. More information on MDT and other Windows deployment tools can be found on the Deliver page of the Springboard Series on TechNet.

I've decided to move all of the apps that won't install under all users to post deploy and copy any shortcuts to the allusers shortcuts.
I wish there was a way to verify that the default user profile and what was copied.
