User Environment Manager can transfer personal application settings of users from one OS to another, for example from Windows 7 to Windows 10. This is default behavior of User Environment Manager, the only requirement is that the application must store its configuration at the same registry and AppData locations in the user profile.

User Environment Manager also provides an XML-based mechanism for settings migration between application versions. In this way, you can avoid situations where personalized data is lost during application upgrade, because it is stored at different location after the upgrade.

The User Environment Manager download package contains XML migration file samples for migrating between different versions of Microsoft Office.
