I finished running windows 7 easy transfer wizard and it worked fine.
after it ran, I was looking at a list of software to install on the new computer. I installed something, and like an idiot, rebooted. so now I don't have that nice list of software.
is that list kept in a log file or xml file somewhere?

First, make sure "Show hidden files, folders, and drives" is enabled by checking the radio button in Control Panel>Folder Options>View. Then go to:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Easy Transfer\PostMigData

You should have a folder in there with the date of the migration. Go into the folder and the file called AppInfo is what you want. Regards, Joe

Jeff,
The tutorial's approach may be the better way to go than my first idea, but are you sure you enabled "Show hidden files, folders, and drives"? Here's what it should look like in Control Panel>Folder Options>View:show hidden files folders drivesRegards, Joe
