Laplink for Netbooks to move applications?

    Has anyone used the $29.95 "Laplink for netbooks" to move selected
    applications from an older XP to a netbook also running XP? I have an old
    (2002) HP laptop that I want to retire, but have kept because it has 5 or 6
    irreplaceable applications that I either downloaded or have lost the CDs.
    TIA, Paul

    There's a free download of a program that attempts to do what you want.
    It attempts to sort out registry issues. Any copy protection system
    worth its salt will obfuscate at least some of what it's doing to prevent
    piracy.
    I've used it on some programs. I've NEVER had it work on any M$ product.

    This is a time-limited trial that will NOT reinstall later.
    Do an image backup of your system, run the uninstaller, restore the
    backup when you're done.

    Another option is both Paragon and Acronis True Image has products that
    allows you to move Windows, applications, and data to another computer.
    I believe Paragon's is called Adaptive Restore. I don't recall what
    Acronis True Image calls theirs.

    It ran for 4 hours last night, and successfully moved almost everything. I
    need to look into a few issues, like CD Copies by Roxio. I need to look
    into drivers, maybe. Cannon's "splices", to make panoramic views just runs
    like I had installed it here, as do all the Microsoft applications - Word,
    FrontPage, etc. I highly recommend Laplink's PCmover. It also moves
    applications from XP to Windows 7 - something Microsoft won't do.
