Upgrading from XP

As previously announced, Laplink has released a new version of their previous PC Mover product that allows for in-place upgrades from XP to Windows 7.

Yeah, I know we generally advise AGAINST this, but for the adventurous, this might be worth trying.

The link to their site follows: Laplink® Software - PCmover Upgrade Assistant - Migrate Computer Programs, Files and Settings

And, BTW, I am not affiliated with Laplink in any way nor do I benefit in any way from this product.

Just thought I would post it for the curious -- and adventurous.

Thanks for posting this Mark

I am sure a great number of XP users will be asking about upgrading or moving stuff to Windows 7

Yeah ... but if you think OUR list of caveats regarding NOT doing an upgrade is long, you should read the list that Laplink wrote!

What will be interesting is if any of our senior members try this and post back here regarding how well this REALLY works.
