Problem migrating using USMT 4.0 - Windows XP to Windows 7

Recommended Posts



I am having trouble usint USMT, for some reason i am unable to use a network UNC path for the StorePath location (where the Mig file is supposed to be created and then used by loadstate, i was able to work around the problem for the scanstate by Mapping the UNC path as a network drive, but no i am just not able to use any network path for the loadstate (if i move the mig file locally it will transfer no problems)


here is the log file:

i do not understand what is wrong with the syntax, and why it doesn't work, the path given is a network share with full permmisions for everyone.


would be glad for some advice, i remmemeber last time i used usmt it worked no problem from the network.


thank you.
