Windows 7: build 7127 Vs 7100 - Thoughts so far

Win 7 64 bit, 7127
 
 

Pinger, I did the same upgrade from 7100 to 7127 as Mercurial. I didn't lose anything. Installed programs, docs, music, pics, etc, all worked fine. The one and only problem I encountered was a program called BW Meter, which is a bandwidth monitor. It freaked a little. But it was nice about it, just came up with a message saying to please reinstall it. Other than that, flawless.

Clean installs are always best. But I've done several upgrades also since 7000, The only major fail was 7000 32bit to 7022 32bit. The upgrade completely failed. I think it was do to an older version of AVG that I should have uninstalled prior to the upgrade. Even with the failure, Win 7 just rolled back to 7000 with no problems. Just a lot of wasted time.

The way I look at it now, I will try an upgrade, but before doing so, I make sure I'm prepared to do a clean install in case the upgrade really messes up. Everything is backed up first. MigWiz (Migration Wizard) helps a lot with that.

Maybe they took out the version check in the RC then. If so, that's great. Makes it even easier to do an upgrade install.

Afaiac, 7127 feels like an RTM. But I didn't extensively evaluate the 7100 rc, so can't really comment on the differences.

I have done an upgrade from 7100 - No Problems at all!

Asking because I've spent lots of hours customizing my 7100 installation and really don't want to start over again with 7127. I know I'll have to do that with the RTM -- but that's months down the road.
Works better then RC 7100 and its faster. They also went back to Direct X 10 - they took Direct X 11 out of RTM 7127.

It is a problem but I question how widespread. A few dozen posts in one thread becomes a bit insignificant when you consider the installed base of Win 7 RC - millions?

Especially when you to take into consideration the amount that will be user generated and no fault of the os.

No, I'm talking about the buildin tool.
Click startbuttom, select "all programs", select "accessories", select, "system tools", select "Easy Windows Transfer".

Sven, "Easy Windows Transfer" and "Migration Wizard" are the same exact thing. It's just called "Migration Wizard" when you run it from the "Support" folder on a burned DVD of Win 7, like what you would do if you were migrating from XP to Win 7.
