    Hey Racoon,

    I think it's time you think about doing a graphical auth. module for Truecrypt and Win7 user profiles :). Why? Because http://forums.truecrypt.org/viewtopic.php?p=55094#55094 ("Encrypting a user profile under Windows Vista") does not work with Windows 7.

    I tested it and it seems, Windows 7 does only allow login for Profiles which it finds in the Path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\ProfilesDirectory

    Because after I login and logoff the encr. Profile and then change the Profiles path back to "%systemdrive%\users", Windows won't allow me to login the new encrypted user. If you enter the user credentials, it just says "invalid user/wrong pass".

    Best regards
