Learn Windows XP Professional: The Files and Settings Transfer Wizard (Page 2) Page 2




The first
window that appears is the Welcome to the Files and Settings
Transfer Wizard startup window.

From here
you would select NEXT to continue. The next screen that
appears is the WHICH COMPUTER IS THIS screen, where you
would select either NEW COMPUTER, where you would want to
transfer your files and settings to, or OLD COMPUTER, which
is what you would select if the system you were working on was where the current files
and settings are that you want transferred.

Let’s
select NEW COMPUTER and click NEXT.


[NOTES FROM THE FIELD] – The OLD COMPUTER can be
running Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98,
Microsoft Windows 98SE, Microsoft Windows Me, Microsoft
Windows NT 4, Windows 2000, or Windows XP (32-bit). We will
go through the OLD COMPUTER settings a little later.

You will
also find that if you are running a personal firewall
product (I use Zone Alarm Pro) you may find, depending on
how you have it set up, that it will alert you that the
Files and Settings Transfer Wizard wants to act as server
process on your system and it wants access to the internet.
This is a little misleading, as it is not actually looking
for an internet connection so much as it is looking for the
local LAN. (Notice the broadcast address.) You need to allow the Files and Settings Transfer
Wizard to act as a server process and access the network or
it will not be able to reach the remote system.

 

You will
need to run the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard on the
OLD COMPUTER shortly (unless you have already done so), and
the next screen will ask you whether or not you will use a
Wizard Disk (which can be created by using the default
selected “I want to create a Wizard Disk in the following
drive” selection,) or you can bypass the step if you already
have a disk or intend on using the Files and Settings
Transfer Wizard from the Windows XP Professional CD-ROM.

We will
elect to use the default selection, as shown above. When we click on NEXT to
continue, the Wizard asks us to make sure there’s a
formatted disk in the floppy drive. Select OK to
continue.

The Files
and Settings Transfer Wizard will create the disk and when
the disk is finished it will display a window that tells you
to go to the OLD COMPUTER and insert the Wizard Disk (A:
disk) and run the Wizard.
