I received a press release announcing the "MoveNowT" program: a free license of PCmover Windows 7 Upgrade Assistant will be provided for each Windows 7 Upgrade Open License purchased through Ingram Micro U.S. This will take effect July 19, and continue through September 30.
PCmover could automatically transfers all (or selected) applications, files, settings, and user accounts to another computer (without the need to install applications on the target computer).
"PCmover is the only software that natively will move all of your programs, files, and settings from one PC to another. There is no use of virtual machine or emulation software. Instead, PCmover's proprietary technology automates data and settings transfers and also emulates installer routines so that applications are also migrated."
In-place upgrade scenarios...from XP to Windows 7, or across "unlike" versions of Windows such as Vista 32-bit to Windows 7 64-bit...are supported. And PCmover is compatible with Windows 7, Vista, and XP.
