I want to move a cdf file of addresses from my windows 7 home premium computer to a new mini computer running xp sp3. Can I just copy from windows 7 machine to a usb flash drive and then copy from usb flash drive to the xp machine or is it more complicated?

Yes, copying files from one computer to another is just that simple.

Whether or not the files will work when you get them to the XP machine is no guarantee. I'm assuming cdf files are what the Windows Address Book uses? (I don't use it, so I don't know) It should be back compatible with the XP version of the program, but there is no guarantee.

Copying is the easy part, but if the files won't open, then you might run into problems.

Hi agordito,

Windows Address Book has been replaced in Windows 7 by Windows Contacts, which uses the .contact file format, not .cdf -- is that what you meant? Or perhaps you received the .cdf file on your Windows 7 computer in an email from someone?

Cheers,
