Windows 7: Transfer regedit parameters xp to win7

Transfer regedit parameters xp to win7

Is it possible to copy the application parameters in the regedit file in XP, then copy them to the Win7 regedit file, in order not to have to install all the applications over again.

Is this possible?

Thank you in advance...

Peter

Hi Peter and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

Sorry, but even if it was possible (and I haven' tried it) I wouldn't consider doing it. Due to the architectural differences between the OSes, I would always recommend that applications are cleanly installed on each OS. This ensures that the files are written to the correct folders, and that the correct information is written to the appropriate locations in the registry.

Welcome to Seven Forums, mcquicker.

I don't think what you are proposing is possible - one of the reasons you cannot upgrade from XP is that there are significant differences in the core processes, and that would affect the registry entries.

I would suggest that you save and print out any application specific settings so you know what to re-set when you re-install the applications.

Sorry.

Easy Transfer from Win7 32 to Win7 64 bit
Bit of a silly question I suppose, but... I'm moving from my old system which I'd upgraded to Win7 (32 bit) in October, to a new 64 bit system (both Home Premium) To transfer, I obviously use the 32 bit Easy Transfer application out of the old system, correct? Thanks.
