Is laplink safe to use, or is it really best just to use easy transfer and reinstall programs?

I am moving my windows xp pro computer to a new windows 7 pro pc. Most of the programs on the old xp machine I have downloaded. The big ones I have not downloaded are crystal reports xI and visual studio 2005 professional. I recall I had to uninstall and reinstall those two a few times before everything worked. I have about 50 downloaded games, utilities, etc. It will take me a while to reinstall everything manually.
So the 60.00 laplink costs sounds well worth it. But I have read mixed reviews on amazon. For some, they had to do everything manually anyway and blew 60.00 bucks and days trying to get laplink to work.
What do you think? What has been your experience? I'd rather spend 3 days reinstalling everything than a week undoing laplink and reinstalling everything anyway.
