unable to use windows easy migration tool to migrate windows 2000 to windows 7

Hi,
I am attempting to use the windows easy transfer that came with windows 7 to copy my files over from my old pc running windows 2000 pro sp4.  I copied the files to a usb drive to install on my windows 2k machine.  However the installer for easy transfer comes up with the following error message, "There was an error launching the file transfer wizard!" Thats it.  Nothing else happens.  Has anyone attempted to use this with W2K professional?  Everywhere i've read so far says that it can be used with windows 2000 per microsoft.  I would greatly appreciate any input into this.  I am almost ready to just use my flash drive to copy the files over manually.  Ohh yes this isnt for me, it is for a client of mine that I am so gracefully assisting.

I was under the impression that the Migration Tool only Supports Windows XP and up.

Well i read where it said windows 2000 (files only), xp, vista.  I could be wrong.  I guess its to the old copy files back n forth between usb.
