not worth it.

kmn1, Office Depot
21 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I upgraded from Windows XP, 32 bit. The little LapLink transferred I could easily have done manually. Many of my programs were 32 bit and won't run natively under Windows 7. However, if LapLink had transferred them properly they would have been run in XP mode. When I called support they answered quickly but were not helpful. She simply reiterated that LapLink would not transfer 32 bit apps. End of story. Don't waste your money.
  • Cons: Performance, will not transfer 32 bit apps.

I won't bother with this again

  • Summary: I used it to migrate from Win 7 32-bit to Win 7 64 bit. There was so much cleanup work after the migration that I should have saved my money. And it only works one time.

PC Mover 10 pack. What a joke!

SUE C., Newegg
15 April 2014
  • Summary: No, I would NOT recommend this product.
  • Pros: Discounted price in a 10 pack bundle
  • Cons: Software is designed for home use. When moving domain users to new systems, it missed the permissions and settings despite being hooked to the domain prior to running the software. The software gives you the option to create a new domain user when moving the files and I did so but it dropped so many settings. So I call their advertised 24/7 support line just for LapLink PC Mover Pro.... and they inform me that line is for home users only. They give me another number t...

It was a complete waste of time and money

zelielarryz, Ebay
10 April 2014
  • Summary: 1. Did not do what it said it would. 2. When I tried to re-install and try again, it wouldn't allow me to. I gave it one star only because the review required at least one star to post.

Can't connect to laplink.com; can't get phone help.

Hoyt P., Newegg
21 March 2014
  • Pros: Heard good things about it.
  • Cons: I got this to transfer files to a new laptop (both Win 7). For three days I was unable to to connect to laplink.com, with three computers and three browsers. That was necessary to enter the serial number and use the program.

Can't connect to Laplink

Hoyt P., Newegg
21 March 2014
  • Pros: I've heard good things about it.
  • Cons: I bought this from Dell with a new laptop. It's necessary to connect to laplink.com to enter the serial number and activate the product. I tried over a three-day period to connect and failed. Spent hours with Laplink support in India and here to no avail. Left phone number with Laplink in US three days ago and have not been called back. spent a half-hour with Wildblue support, no help.

Not Good

Drew E., Newegg
5 March 2014
  • Summary: All the hyperbole says it's an easy, pain free migration. I was upgrading from a Windows XP 32 bit machine to a new machine running Windows 7 64 bit. The transfer hosed Windows Installer (at least) and now nothing will update. The drivers for most of the hardware, including the DVD won't/can't load so I can`t even do a Windows reload. I'll have to start over with a clean install and manually migrate.
  • Pros: None I can think of.
  • Cons: It transferred everything over but hosed the Windows 7 64 bit OS in the new machine.

Agreed with John G

Bryan B., Newegg
16 February 2014
  • Summary: I work with a Fortune 200 company and we were more than happy to try to get this to work.
  • Pros: Is able to migrate some machines and applications from Windows XP to Windows 7.
  • Cons: Microsoft has a free tool to transfer people from machine to machine and from Win XP to Win 7. Laplink claims that it can rewrite the application on the fly to support whichever model is needed but it just picks up a folderr location and registry entry and throws it int he new OS. If it sticks, great! If no, not PCMover's fault.

Didn't work, comes with Laplink Ads

Melanie L., Newegg
5 January 2014
  • Summary: I'll take it back if I ever get it to:
  • Pros: It didn't ask me for the key I paid for?
  • Cons: Tries to install crapware. Locked up reading my registry on Windows 7 Ultimate, so I have yet to get it to go through.

toilet paper transfers better...

John G., Newegg
23 November 2013
  • Pros: it will keep folder structure
  • Cons: claims to transfer programs and registration to new computer. does not. for all of the programs that won't transfer, software metaphorically points the finger and says, "it's not my fault."
