The registry Key is
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\FreeCell
Just copy across the values for each - or export them as a .reg file and then import them into the new PC

It's probably quicker to play (or at least start) a Freecell game on the new PC as that will create the key for you ready for you to transfer your scores etc.

OK - Try:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\GameUX\Games\{6C815596-821F-40b3-8A84-643B73A8EB16}
This is created after one game

Ok, here is the entry for that key.  I am not sure exactly which one of these I should modify but I will say that on this machine I have played 2 games and won 1 of them.  

Where should I go from here?  Thank you.

BTW I found the same registry key in the old laptop. I exported it and then imported on new and it doesn't show the scores from the old.

Getting warmer now - sorry I was on a Vista Box at the time and forgot W7 is very different

You also need to copy across the files at C:\Users\<ProfileName>\AppData\Local\Microsoft Games\FreeCell

That has the rest of the data
