Windows 7: Unable to transfer all User accounts from XP to Windows 7

Unable to transfer all User accounts from XP to Windows 7


I have one PC on which I am running Windows 7 ultimate and Windows XP (via MS Virtual PC 2007).

I have downloaded Windows Easy Transfer for Windows XP (wet7xp_x86.exe) and installed it onto the the VM running XP.

I have created several accounts on the XP VM but during the transfer only the administrator user account that I am logged into in VM XP is transferred into Windows 7. Should not all the accounts be transferred simultaneously? What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

I would not transfer account settings as they are a corruption path into a fresh install.

Easiest is to simply drag the named User accont via explorer to external and then paste into target.

Or you can drag select User folders to storage and then copy their contents to the corresponding folder in Explorer bar at left.
