Transfer soft token from machine to machine in its current state (cryptocard)

We are using two programs to store soft tokens on computers. For Windows XP, we use Cryptocard EUS software. For Windows 7, we use Blackshield ID. Both applications are from the same vendor.

The goal is to transfer an activated token from one computer to the other. For example, a customer has to have to computer rebuilt. Instead of re-issuing a new token that needs to be setup after the rebuild, I would like to copy the token in its current state to the re-imaged computer.

In the past, we had to deal with only XP boxes. So, it was a matter of disabling the Cryptocard EUS service and then copying the c:\program files\Cryptocard EUS\*.* folder to a temporary location for storage. From there, on the new build, we would copy and overwrite the current cryptocard eus folder with the copied one. The cryptocard software would recognize the token, stored the user's PIN, and be synchronized; it would be ready to go.

The problem is that we have to use Blackshield ID for Windows 7 boxes because Cryptocard EUS (XP) does not play nice with Win 7.

Is there anyway to migrate a token, in an activated state, from an XP box using Crypto EUS to a Windows 7 box using Blackshield ID? I would hate for users to have to re-install their tokens.
