I'm using PCMover to migrate my old computer. After the transfer finishes, I see this error message on the new computer. What happened?



This error means that the migration fails, but for an unknown reason. The best solution that we've found so far is to simply redo the migration. This time, select only those items that are actually installed on the old computer. For example, if the old computer does not have networking components, uncheck all of the networking items in the wizard. It may also help to make sure that both computers have every other application shut down. If you can exit from utilities running in the System Tray (the box in the right corner of your Task bar), that would be good as well.
