Error Restoring

description

I tried this by backing up WLW on a Windows XP machine, and restoring to a Windows Vista Business machine (both x86).
 
When I try to restore, I get the following error:
 
System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Cannot write to the registry key.
 
The Vista machine has UAC turned off. I tried it with the Run As Administrator option as well and it did not work. My account is a local Administrator on the Vista machine.
 
The backup log file had no errors, and appeared to be successful. I placed the backup file on C:\users\username\desktop and tried to restore from there.
 
Any ideas?

Can you try again, if it errors again, can you email your log file to wlwbackup@scottisafool.co.uk
