  • If you mean Windows Easy Transfer, it does not support transfer from Windows 7 Professional 64-bit to Windows Vista 32-bit system.

  • I've never heard of anyone successfully been able to do this, i've read a few articles of people trying and failing as vista uses a different gui interface etc to win7.

    Someone correct me if im wrong but i think microsoft advises that if you go from win7 to vista you must do a clean install of vista and transfer data manually.
