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.
  • 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. No, I would NOT buy it again.
  • 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.

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.

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. Maybe possible for some very light XP users but try the Microsoft option first.
  • 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, g...

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: a) remove the ad for themselves b) actually work
  • 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." don't waste your money or time.

I would rate this less than zero if I could

JoanW, Office Depot

  • Excerpt: I am very unsatisfied with this purchase. my web research said this was the best product but didn't work. once I called tech support they asked a lot of questions about the age of my laptop and if I did regular maintenance.
  • Cons: Performance, didn't work as advertised
