Laplink has released a software package to allow existing Windows users to easily move all their data and programmes to a new Vista-driven PC.
The Vista-compatible version of PCmover automatically moves programs, data files and settings from an old PC to a new PC.
“With each generation of new PCs, the set-up task is becoming more complicated and time consuming,” said Emir Aboulhosn, Laplink vice president for global marketing communications.
“Not that long ago, only a few applications had to be reinstalled and some critical data transferred. It wasn’t that difficult. Now, consumers have dozens of applications to move as well as thousands of data files – photos, music, financial records, e-mail and more,” he said.
With PCmover, users also don’t need to find old CDs or serial numbers to reinstall applications.
Users of PCmover can migrate from a PC running Windows95 or any later version to any other version of Windows, including Vista.
Any version of PCmover already purchased can be upgraded to handle Vista migrations free of charge.
PCmover for Vista starts at £26.
