I have been tasked with a downgrade task from Win8 to 7 (64 bits in both cases).
I have used the Win8 "easy transfer" tool to create an archive of the original machine and I'm having a problem to open it under win7. The file is recognized, the (basic) password is accepted but the program then throws a very unhelpful "Windows Easy Transfer couldn't open the file ". Nothing in the event log.
I guess that this scenario has not been fully tested by MS ?
Any idea / suggestion most welcome !
