Please god they didn't use the 'doze "Files and Settings transfer wizard".
That totally messed up all my symlinks when I used it once.

You need to take a look in the windows event log and see if you can find a
more detailed error message there.

Yeh, can't see anything immediately obviously wrong yet. Maybe you could
rerun the config, but this time answer 'yes' when it asks if it should
overwrite the .conf file - save a copy of your current one, by all means, but
it's a worthwhile experiment to try and narrow down the source of the trouble.
