Will a straight data transfer from XP to windows 7 suffice?

Thanks in advance,

Marc

If you mean an upgrade from xp to 7, it should.  If however you mean to copy the game folders from xp and paste them into 7 without doing an actual install, then no, you would need to reinstall.  They write data to the registry so just copying the game files will not work.
