4.0 out of 5 stars Requires Some Close Supervision November 3, 2009
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC Disc
Laplink is a company whose products go a long way back and have a history of quality and reliability. Laplinks' PC Mover is no different: it really does migrate anything and everything from one machine to another without requiring you to reinstall all your software. It is not as easy as the website and its customer testimonials promise, but if you go slowly and pay close attention to what it is doing, you will be pleasantly surprised at not having to re-unlock Microsoft Office, dig out installation CDs and DVDs, or re-register cherished DRM-infected games. PC Mover even uses the simple metaphors of "Moving Vans" and "Loading and Unloading the Moving Van" to make things easy to understand.

This listing is the boxed product of PC Mover Windows 7 Upgrade Assistant: the digital download version is the same product, but nothing is shipped to you. Instead you pull it down on your computer. You may view the Digital Download version here: Laplink PC Mover Windows 7 Upgrade Assistant [DOWNLOAD]

This "Windows 7 Upgrade Assistant" flavor of PC Mover is a pretty sweet deal: a lower price gets you a one-time migration to Windows 7. This can be used for upgrading one machine and putting everything back on afterwards. For every additional machine you wish to use this version of PC Mover, you will need to purchase an additional license.

My only complaint with the software is when it tries to step out of the path of what you are doing, and pull you along with it. For example, after you agree to the license and read the disclaimer and warning, you are given a link to the documentation in PDF form.

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning! Don't depend on this program. October 29, 2009
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC Disc
We followed directions explicitly in upgrading our Vista computer to Win 7. PC Mover was not only a complete failure (nothing migrated to the new OS), but it has locked us out of installing or uninstalling any program. Unfortunately, due to rave reviews on various computer magazine sites, we foolishly did not back up some files to hard copies, but depended upon the utility provided by PC Mover. We got an error message and contacted PC Mover technical support via live chat and were told that "we must have done something wrong". That was it...great tech support. Contacting PC Mover by phone yielded less help. When asked if we were moving from one pc to another or if we were upgrading a single machine, the support person groaned when we confirmed the latter situation, and suggested that we should get a refund.
So...no tech support, and no working computer...this software deserves a minus rating if it were available.

1.0 out of 5 stars If you think it worked, check again! November 20, 2009
Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
I have NEVER deleted a review in Amazon before this product. I completely trashed my previous review praising the PC Mover Upgrade Assistant after I realized that my system was broken in a very aggravating way.

After the problems were discovered and LapLink support was worse than useless, I rolled back my Moving Van unpacking and installed all my apps by hand under Win7.

The Good:
It did in fact migrate all my third party applications and games from the old PC (your machine before the OS reinstall) to the new PC (your machine after the Win7 Upgrade). Some programs did require that the activation key be re-entered. This was expected and not problematic. I bypassed some glitchy Win7 issues with older games on DirectX 11 when I had completed the migration. I would recommend printing out the Upgrade assistant PDF file and following the steps.

For this kind of in-place upgrade, the moving van is smaller than the PC Assistant thinks it is. A program error I'm sure, but it's not really packing up your software for this kind of in-place migration. It's packing up registry settings so it can point the new OS to the programs where they are already located on your hard drive. This made for an uncomfortable moment when I began the moving van unpack and LapLink informed me that I was restoring a 240GB van file to a drive with only 230GB free. This was not correct - the van was not truly that size, and the unpack completed with no more space taken up than was used by the new OS files.

The Bad:
If something goes wrong in the move, your best recourse is to un-do the Moving Van unpack, which essentially brings you back to the point after you have installed Windows 7, but before you imported all your stuff into Windows 7 again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Upgrade assistant November 10, 2009
Access Method:Thin Software Download| Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I found Laplink's PCMover Upgrade Assistant to be extremely helpful and certainly well worth the price. I was able to upgrade an older laptop (Gateway M320) from Windows XP Prof. to Windows 7 Home Premium with relative ease. That's not to say that everything was perfect but initially I thought I was going to have to upgrade to Vista and then to Windows 7 to do an "in place" upgrade (I even bought the Vista upgrade). The Upgrade Assistant let me go directly from XP to Win 7 with little difficulty.
The steps I took were:
1. Backup your hard drive (I would do a full backup of everything if possible but at bare minimum backup you data).
2. Run the Windows 7 upgrade assessment utility.
3. Take care of any issues that the assessment utility flags as critical and review the rest for potential resolution.
4. Buy PCMover Upgrade Assistant.
5. Run the Upgrade Assistant following their instructions to the letter (if you've downloaded the software make sure you go get the PDF instructions).
6. Run Windows 7 upgrade.
7. Take care of any issues that need immediate attention.
8. Install Upgrade Assistant under Windows 7 and complete the process.

From this point you will have go through and check your applications and (as I did) have to re-install those that don't quite work right. I also had a problem with the video driver because there isn't one for this chip set that's compatible with Windows 7 (and Intel doesn't seem interested in creating one). I did find a work around so that's solved. Any problems that I've had or will have can't be attributed to PCMover. PCMover has save me a lot of time and effort and worked as advertised. I would strongly recommend it for people that want to upgrade from XP to Windows 7. ...
