    Hello,

    I saved my Outlook 2007 settings in my previous Win 7 Ultimate version and now have Win 7 Pro (as shown in http://praxistipps.chip.de/outlook-2007-konten-exportieren_13068 ). I wanted to import them, but now I get the message:

    Can not import: Error acces to regestry

    The saves reg seems to be fine, I exported the file like in the tutorial and its a *.reg file. However, opening in texteditor gave me one thing: The regestry editor version 5; while the Win7 Pro runs 6.1. But this should be incompatible at all I guess.

    What can I do, do import my settings?

    To import registry settings, you simply double click the reg file and click Yes to confirm the import. You have to import the settings as an administrator.
