1. Back up the source computer.
2. Close all applications.
3. Run the ScanState command on the source computer to collect files and settings. You should specify all of the .xml files that you want the ScanState command to use. scanstate \\fileserver\migration\mystore /config:config.xml /i:miguser.xml /i:migapp.xml /v:13 /l:scan.log
4. Prepare the Destination Computer and Restore Files and Settings by installing the operating system on the destination computer.
5. Install all applications that were on the source computer. Although it is not always essential, it is good practice to install all applications on the destination computer before restoring the user state. This ensures that migrated settings are preserved.
ALERT: The application versions that are installed on the destination computer should be the same version as the one on the source computer.
6. Close all applications on the Destination Computer
7. Run the LoadState command on the destination computer. Specify the same set of .xml files that you specified when using the ScanState command. However, you do not have to specify the config.xml file,unless you want to exclude some of the files and settings that youmigrated to the store.
For example, the following command migrates the files and settings to a destination computer running Windows Vista or Windows 7:
loadstate \\fileserver\migration\mystore /config:config.xml /i:miguser.xml/i:migapp.xml /v:13 /l:load.log
8 .Log off after you run the LoadState command. Some settings (for example, fonts, wallpaper, and screensaver settings) will not take effect until the next time the user logs on.
