Windows 7: Laplink PCmover Upgrade assistant

07 Nov 2009   #11


The only problem which I discovered (and still unsolved) is that I cannot play any of the MS Games included with Win 7.

For some reason, the games features is not activated. If I try to turn on that feature, it generates an error that it has encountered an error. I will start a new topic about this.

I've never tried that (never had a machine with Vista) but my hunch would be yes. It worked well taking an XP 32 bit install and upgrading to a Win7 64 bit environment. Obviously, the machine has to be 64 bit capable.

Windows 7 Professional x64

I intend to move my XP machine contents to a new Windows 8.1 install on a newer computer using laplink software. I've already purchased it. But I'm using Acronis 2014 Premium for image files (.tib and .vhd conversions). If I need to use XP for a couple stubborn programs, I'll still have XP Mode on a Win 7 Pro install on the other hard drive (but right now that won't boot, so idk.)

I just thought about this though. Microsoft Office 2003 suites and applications are not compatible with Windows 8.

Office 2007 is supposed to be compatible with windows 8.

I would ask in however you'll almost defnintely be better off doing a Clean Install - Windows 8 as reimporting all of the accumulated XP corruption is probably one of the worst install practices one could follow.

Unless you have touchscreen you'll be ever better off with a Clean Install Windows 7

Which Disk to Use with PcMover Windows 7 Upgrade Assistant?
Can you use an upgrade disk to do an in-place upgrade using this sofware, or do you need a full system disk? I've gotten contradictory answers from LapLink support, so I need to hear from those of you who have actually used this app. Many thanks. :)

I recently used PCMover to migrate programs, data, and setting from an XP machine to a Windows 7 machine. The good was that no harm was done to Windows 7 as a result of the move. The not so good was that several folders filled with gigabytes of data files were skipped. Had I not had the two...
The moving van has a flat tire. I am in the process of moving programs, settings, and files from an XP SP3 machine to a Windows 7 Professional box and trusted PCMover to do the job. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give it a weak 5. The main problem was that it failed to copy data folders. Why? In two...
