Hi,

Are we talking transfer from one computer to another, or an upgrade on the same computer? Windows migrations tools, from one computer to another, do not usually cover installed programs. Those will have to be installed manually after the fact.

To move apps and files you'll need Laplink PCMover.

It's going to cost mind you.
