Let's discuss just the email for a moment. As you have read folk are discovering that Outlook Express is not included and Live Mail is not accepting all the content.
But about the transfer wizard. I did use it and not a single email transfered from old to new machine. And that's with Outlook 2003 being on both machines.
I had to copy that over manually. I also had to install all my apps.
--> But about the other failure. If you are going to use the ehternet cable between machines be sure there is no other active network or it may fail.
I purchased a Asus computer with Windows 7 on it and I want to xfer all my data (emails included) from my EMachine with Windows Xp on it. I have an ethernet cable attached to both computers and a wireless adapter plugged into my new computer. When I do the xfer data wizard Windows 7 is asking for a key. I tried typing in the file name from the old computer that the wizard named the file but the next option will not highlight. Not sure what I'm doing wrong.
Do I have to have a wireless adapter attached to the old computer too?
