I've never actually tried it but would presume it will work in the same way.

I am trying to use easy transfer cable from windows 7 to windows 8 and nothing is happening why


How can a cable know what to transfer? even when you give it a name you understand, the computer can't do anything with it, as long as you don't install the appropriate program on BOTH computers. For everything you connect to a computer, you at least need a driver, so the computer knows what you are connecting and a program to let the connected device work as you want it to work.
The easy transfer cables were in use before the windows era. Till Windows Vista, they offered these cables, and still you only could transfer files and folders like you could with copying them to an external drive and back.
For all cables around you really need extra software and knowledge of setting up a computer in the first place. When you make a real backup of all your files and folders, on a windows 7 PC, as you should do on a regular base, you can restore the files and folders in a windows 8 machine. No need to try to put programs without installing them to windows 8, because you will end up with lots of rubbish on the computer and no running programs.

I want to transfer files from a Windows XP Laptop to a Windows Vista PC. Can I use the Belkin (MicraDigital) Easy Transfer Cable for Windows 8 to do this?


You can go ahead and try this, but I think it would easier to send yourself emails of the files, or use an online cloud storage to transfer the files. Try Google Drive, or OneDrive.
