    Microsoft FAQ  : What can I transfer to my new computer?
"Program settings. Settings that keep your programs configured as you had them on your old computer. You must first install the programs on your new computer, because Windows Easy Transfer does not transfer the programs themselves. Some programs might not work on this version of Windows, including security programs, antivirus programs, firewall programs (your new computer should already have a firewall running to help ensure safety during the transfer), and programs with software drivers."

But the true is that WET supports only transfer of 78 program settings listed bellow. (Source? - MigApp.xml file!)
