Hi. I am trying to find more info re the above, as I have built a new PC with new Mobo, Cpu, PSU etc, and Windows 10 Home, mainly as I hear MS is stopping support for my Windows 7 Ultimate soon, and I want to get used to the new OS, but will run it in parallel with my old one for a a while !
I see there are companies that advertise transferring everything for $50........but when you log in there, they say NOT programs ! I have called them out on this but got nowhere.
Files, and personal info etc is no problem. Programs can be re-installed with original disks etc, but I'm wondering which files can be transferred from the 'Old' to the 'New'. A lot of the info will be in users/name/AppData/prog/local or roaming/ etc.
But I'm wondering what can be transferred, or copied from the Registry, as that is probably what it is all about.
So when the new OS [Win 10 in my case] had been installed, what could be transferred from the Win 7 Registry to make the Progs work.
If the 'Charging' companies [$200 !] can do this over the Internet, there must be a way !
I hope !
