How did you export them?

Navigate to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup and paste the links in.

another location:

C:\Users\<insert_your_username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

But is that what you want? the items starting up when the computer starts? or you want all the links to the programs in the "All Programs" list?
