Hello all,

I have what I'll politely call, a 'difficult' client. I am putting in a new Win7 machine for him and have been told in no uncertain terms, there can't be any differences between the old and the new machine. This person is  v e r y  computer unsavy, so every little thing throws him off. 

I've done the Windows Easy Transfer a bunch of times, but it seems to not quite get everything. I haven't really worried about it as most people accept a little disruption when switching machines and just roll with it. 

So, I'm looking for suggestions of what others do, either in place of WET, or in addition to.

setup:
Old comp: Win7 32-bit
New comp: Win7 x64
Office 2007
Connected to SBS 2003

Thanks,

-jn

Thanks M3rc74.

I looked at the forensit tool briefly and it might have done what I want.  In the end, I used the Windows Easy Transfer Tool.  

It actually did move IE Passwords!

There were settings I just had to do manually.  Look and feel stuff in Outlook and Word and Internet Explorer.

Thanks,
-John

Through other research I found the answer I needed.  The Windows Easy Transfer Wizard did 98% of the settings and got me close enough that I could go through and tweek the profile from there.
