Re: Windows Easy Transfer can't transfer from Vista-64bit?
Yes, I ran WET from inside the 64bit installation, created the source files
for the restore into the 32Bit installation and exited the 64bit
Looks like Colin may have my answer I "wasn't" looking for after your post.
Now that we know the 64 to 32 bit WET transfer is not supported (MS only
knows why...) does anybody know if there is a utility out there that supports
what MS does not? Free preferably but I'm open to some options before I pull
th plug and do it manually.
Thank you for the post Rick!
