    I've learned now heavily about the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard. I've also learned about the USMT, which I've not yet used in practice, but learned the basics of in the .inf version. Studying that was how I was able to learn this deep into the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard. Basically, the two have similar, but not exactly the same configuration.

    Now here I'll post the configuration for the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard. I took what I found already there, and was adding features to it. I didn't create this from scratch, and it would've been silly to, as it's a configuration file.

    My issue is that whenever I'm saving settings, anytime I tell it to save something from HKEY_CURRENT_USER in the registry, it does not work. I was needing to know if anyone knows why, so I can correct it please.

    I just learned of this file. It might help too. I was repeating the options I used to see if this file came out or not for saving it. It did. Hopefully it will help, and reveal the issues.

    And another FASTWIZ.log. In this one I was experimenting with the key root names. Since HKEY_CURRENT_USER points to a branch in HKEY_USERS, I pointed the configuration to save this error, to see if maybe it doesn't understand that kind of pointers or something. Well, I get the same error.
