Cubase Essential to Elements - What about Automation?

Hi everyone

I’d like to remove my old Cubase Essential 4 projects from my old computer into a new one. The old computer has Essential 4 in it. I installed the elements 7 on my new laptop.
I use the “Save project into a new folder”. I check the “Freeze edits”, “Minimise audio” and “Remove unused audio” options. Then I save the project on a external HD and open the project with Elements 7.
The problem is that all the automation is gone. Could somebody please help me; Is there something I should do differently?
