Property Value

true to load the Windows user profile; otherwise, false.

This property is referenced if the process is being started by using the user name, password, and domain.

If the value is true, the user's profile in the HKEY_USERS registry key is loaded. Loading the profile can be time-consuming. Therefore, it is best to use this value only if you must access the information in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER registry key.

In Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000, the profile is unloaded after the new process has been terminated, regardless of whether the process has created child processes.

In Windows XP, the profile is unloaded after the new process and all child processes it has created have been terminated.
