Just a success story I wanted to post here, anyone who thinks to upgrade instead of a clean install (I don't know, I was quite reluctant...) , it all works fine!
Applications were checked for compatibility, the compatibility report showed what is NOT going to work after the upgrade, (and so it didn't) and except that , all drivers
/software worked fine afterwards.Ofcourse you can install the updated drivers from Windows Update in Windows 7 afterwards.
Only thing, after the first compatibility check, it asked my Vista to be restarted in order to be able to proceed. I thought it was going to loop-asking that, but on the next restart, I was able to proceed with the upgrade. A few incompatible software I noticed
: Daemon Tools:
Windows 7 found out the Virtual SCSI controller installed by Daemon tools (SPTD.SYS I think) was incompatible and reported it might not work properly. Indeed upon the first boot, errors came out about Daemon Tools, and I had to remove its startup entries manually from the registry.
However, it's not quite needed, cause to my surprise , when you right click an ISO file, Windows 7 gives you the option to Load this as a virtual drive! Antivir Personal Edition:
