Environment

Bundles
Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 3 - 10.3 Bundles
Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 1 - 10.1 Bundles
Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 1 - 10.1 Migration

Situation

Bundle needs to use the name of a macro, not its value: for example, placing %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Temp in HKCU\Environment

With ZCM 10.1.x, using variable with two percent signs, e.g.,  %%USERPROFILE%% causes bundle to fail.
With ZCM 10.3, the variable is incorrectly replaced, e.g., %%USERPROFILE%% is inserted as %Administrator%

Also, applications in ZDM7 that use two percent signs for this purpose fail after migration
