Solved Program problems after using Easy Transfer from XP to Win 8

April 5, 2013 at 17:22:29
Specs: Windows8, A6-5400K/6gbRam/1TD HD
I used MS Easy Transfer to get some of my XP programs/files to my new HP Windows 8 pc and now a few of my programs will not work so I did a Systems Restore only to be advised that it was not successful. The message states "Windows 8 Systems Restore 8 error 0x80070005. I turned Norton off and retried the restore but no luck. Help

Easy Transfer helps you transfer your files, email, pictures, and settings only.

It does not transfer programs or applications!. They have to be re-installed manually on your new operating system, using the original installation media for those programs.

The problem is that my Systems Restore will not work ever since I used Easy Transfer

As per #1.

Did you manage to get your pictures etc across, otherwise there might still be a way of doing so (including old downloads if required)?

As for programs, they need to be re-installed anyway so restore will not help you.

I trust this does not cut across whatever response #3 was pointing to, but at the time of writing the link said the website was down.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
