    Has anyone used PC Mover, Laplink's XP to Win 7 upgrade assistant?
    What has been your experience?
    Thanks in advance

    I upgraded from XP Pro 32 bit to Windows 7 Pro 64 bit using Laplink. It
    worked as advertised with a few problems, that being programs that would
    not work on Win 7.

    De activate or uninstall programs like Adobe Acrobat, Photoshop and
    Office, then re activate when you're running Win 7.

    I'm a believer in cloned drives, so I cloned my C: drive before the
    update/move and kept the clone for about 2 weeks, then cloned the
    Windows 7 drive to the old XP clone. I've been running problem free
    since November 3rd or 4th.

    It didn't work for me.

    It gave every indication that it was working both before and after, but once
    Windows 7 was up and running NONE of my programs worked. They were all in
    the Program Files folder but not in the Registry correctly. Nothing worked.
    I wasted my time and money.

    Worked fine for me.
    The only program I had to reinstall was the AV [And maybe that was my fault
    as I forgot to turn it off during the process.].
    I would hate to reinstall all my programs so this was essential.

    I used a program called ZinstallXP7 (www.zinstall.com) to do this. It
    not only migrates your apps, it migrates your entire Windows XP into a
    virtualized machine under Windows 7.

    I think it will work for 90% people, as advertised, but for me, I have a
    somewhat complicated system layout, with Linux lying alongside Windows,
    etc. So it took a lot of help support from their support team to finally
    get it working on my system.

    Used it to migrate from Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit Release Candidate
    to Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit via in-place upgrade. There were a
    handful of applications that I had to reinstall - but it worked
    suprisingly well. Most applications worked. When all worked for a
    couple of weeks, I deleted Windows.old
