2. Setting Up the Source Computer

If you plan on running LoadState on a computer, you'll need to copy several files onto the computer first. The source computer can be running Windows XP, Windows Vista, or even Windows 7. Since the most common migration scenario will be migrating from Windows XP to Windows 7, it's important to know how to prepare the Windows XP computer to run LoadState.

The easiest way to do this is to simply copy the appropriate folder. If you install the WAIK on a technician's computer, it will include the following two folders:

  • C:\Program Fi1es\Windows AIK\Too1s\USMT\x86

  • C:\Program Fi1es\Windows AIK\Too1s\USMT\amd64

The ...\x86 folder includes all the USMT files needed for a 32-bit source computer, and the ...\amd64 folder includes all the files needed for a 64-bit source computer. You can simply copy the contents of these folders to a root folder on the C: drive such as C:\USMT. You need to ensure that the folders within these folders are also included.

As a reminder, it is available as a free download from Microsoft's download site (www.microsoft.com/downloads/) by entering WAIK in the Search All Download Center text box. The Windows AIK for Windows 7 download (KB3AIK_EN.iso) file should be listed on the first page. Windows XP may not have the .NET Framework 2.0 and MSXML 6.0 installed on it already, so you may see an error similar to Figure 2 if you try to install the WAIK. However, the WAIK includes these tools.

Figure 2. Installing the WAIK on Windows XP

In Figure 2, you can see links for the .NET Framework Setup and the MSXML 6 SP1 Setup. If you get the error message, install these two components and then restart the installation. It's also possible to automate the deployment of the WAIK using one of many methods, such as assigning it computers using Group Policy or deploying it with System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM).

After you have copied the appropriate files or installed the WAIK on the Windows XP system you plan to use as the source computer, you can use the steps detailed in the following sections to begin running ScanState.
