I needed to backup bookmarks from the Chrome web browser using USMT as part of an image refresh task I’ve recently implemented using SCCM 2012R2 + MDT Integration.
Searching the Internet (why re-invent the wheel eh?) only gave me a couple of results, and when trying the ‘solution’ I found that it did not work.
Here is the main post that I used as a reference: http://www.itninja.com/question/user-state-migration-tool-1
The reason it failed was that the detection rule path in migapp.xml (referred to in the above link) was failing. When I installed Chrome on my system, the registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Google\Chrome that is being detected did not exist:
I shortened the path of the detection rule to: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Google which was the only path that existed in my test systems and that did the trick.
So all you need to do is modify migapp.xml…
