Using a 32bit laptop, I saved my settings etc. using "Windows Easy Transfer" from the Win7 RC.

I set the file destination to a Win2K R2 machine that happened to be 64bit.

When I re-installed my laptop and tried to restore my settings from the file I'd saved I was surprised to get an error: "Windows Easy Transfer can't transfer files from a 64-bit computer to a 32-bit computer."

Is there a known workaround? Ideas on how to unpack the file and get my stuff?

Is the laptop 64-bit capable? – John T Dec 1 '09 at 0:45
Nope.. it's the same laptop I made the .mig file from - why having saved it to a 64-bit machine makes it unusable is unfathomable – Kevin Davis Dec 1 '09 at 2:34

I know this is a really old question, but I do not like unanswered ones ;)

There is a tool for extracting files from .mig archives called Mike Morawski’s MigViewer Utility.

You can find download links and usage information here and here is the direct download link.
