    Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone else has had issues trying to migrate a physical Windows XP machine to Parallels.

    I'm attempting to transfer a Windows XP Pro (SP3) machine to a Parallels 16 Desktop install on Mac, as the XP machine has critical software installed and tied to the specific machine. I'm following the article at and I'm failing at step 2.

    I have downloaded Parallels Transporter Agent on the XP machine, but when I try to run it I get the error message "This version of Windows is not supported. Minimum supported version is Windows 7." The article I linked above clearly states that it supports "Windows XP (Home, Professional SP2/SP3". I have checked all requirements for the processor, available HD space, etc. and they are all well within spec.

    Do I need to download a different version of Parallels Transporter Agent to work on XP? If so, how do I do that, and will it affect importing into Parallels Desktop 16?
