According to the instructions at the Microsoft Download Center you need to install Easy Transfer on the XP computer, it is already installed on Windows 7.


Start the Easy Transfer on the XP computer.


Type Easy Transfer in the Search programs and file box, right click on Easy Transfer in the pane above the search box and choose Run as administrator.


Once Easy transfer starts follow the instructions provided by the Wizard to select and transfer your data.


You can use the following to make the transfer:


A USB easy transfer cable.


A network connection.


Removable media, such as a flash drive or an external hdd.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
