Are you sure that you exported and imported correcty? Iaf file sould be exorted and imported from accounts menu.
If you fell its complex, you can always create accounts manually

There is another way,
Run registry editor (regedit) and navigate to key:
Quote:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Account Manager\Accounts

Right click on "Accounts" Key and click "Export"
Save the exported reg file and import it on new computer (double click on it).

Export worked on XPproSP3x86, but import did not on w7u64b, all accounts imported, but none show up in OE, what could it be?

How do you mean 'other identities'?
How could one create the same 'identity'?
(I left mine in both cases to the default, ie 'main identity'.)

When importing iaf files, some worked, others did not.
Even tried after recreating them in the old OE, but it did not help for all, only some (how come?).
Oddly, they change in size when recreated.
Also, it seems that the OE version you offer says 5.0, but many files are nearly the latest update (from which the iaf are exported).

Have you always been able to export and import all of them without problems?
