Windows Easy Transfer vs. User State Migration Tool

Do you know if there is a difference between these two tools? MS site sometimes points to one and sometimes to another when recomending a tool for migrating from XP to Windows 7,

Also, should I expect problems or take special steps when migrating from XP x86 to Windows 7 X64, using one of these or similar tool?

Tks, Walter

I believe USMT is for servers, or will handle servers, and the Easy Transfer will not handle servers.

Hi wallyinnc

If you use the XP Windows Easy Transfer you can expect problems with Windows 7, download the newer version for XP, Vista, and Windows 7, from MS downloads.
