    Offer was available for a short time... now a long time ago..
    Keep your eyes open for offers for Easeus Todo PCTrans. Does a similar job.
    - however I have been told by Easeus this installs all progs on C: even if you installed them on D: for example.

    So I prefer Laplink, which I've used recently with considerable success. About 1.5% of programs transferred require re-installing. And you can move data with it of course.

    You can still run Windows Easy Transfer in Windows 10. All you have to do is to copy two directories from your Windows 7/Windows 8: \Windows\system32\migration and \Windows\system32\migwiz to your destination system. Place them anywhere outside Windows hierarchy. Run migwiz\migwiz.exe

    Tested on my own machine doing W7->W10 and W10->W10
    I was in the process of creating an easy transfer file on my Win7 laptop when I read it no longer existed for Windows 10, which is on the laptop for the transfer. Found this post and added these directories and VOILA! Worked like a charm and many thanks to those of you who help us deal with these constant frustrations. You Rock!

    Easy Transfer has F'd up every profile I've ever tried it on.
    Profile Wizard, I've had 100% success with, both local and domain profiles.

    ForensiT Free Downloads

    Maybe I'm being paranoid, but this site looks very suspicious. Also the "software" download is a zip file with just a 400k exe file (a very typical virus size file)

    Can anyone confirm it's legit software

    Best way to A) upgrade from Vista 64 bit to Win 10 B) move files


    A) I've seen that 4/1 is the deadline for Vista re MS & Google Chrome security updates, Go To Webinar will not function at all on it, and who knows what else that hasn't been published yet. Thus it seems I must upgrade from Vista (my machine is a HP p6142p circa 2009-10) to another Windows OS, and Win 10 appears the logical choice .
    Seems like going from Vista to 10 is a huge jump and runs a big risk of an improper/failed upgrade (I've never done an upgrade, so for me this whole thing is scary). Which of these paths would best keep risk of failure low, keep the # of backups lowest, provide the best dollar value for the effort, or would be what you would do?
    1) Vista>Win 7 upgrade>Win 8.1 upgrade>Free upgrade to Win 10
    2) Vista>Win 8 upgrade>Win 8.1 upgrade>Free upgrade to Win 10
    3) Vista>Win 8.1 upgrade>Free upgrade to Win 10
    4) Vista>paid upgrade to Win 10
    5) Buy a new all-N1 PC/laptop with Win 10 (most intense use would be photo edit/Inet content creation-suggestions?)
    B) With no "Easy Transfer" on Win 10 could one restore or somehow transfer a backup into the new Win 10 directory structure or is Laplink the clear winner on how to move programs and files?
    I know this is a lot, but given the deadline others may need the answers as well (I found this thread from Search).

    Hi Dave, welcome to the Ten Forums.

    I am not sure if this helps you but the Vista to 10 in-place upgrade over Windows 7 works. I have tested it and posted the results here: Solved In-place upgrade - XP to 10 without losing the apps - Windows 10 Forums

    That being said, I would select the last of your listed options, buy a new laptop.

    Thanks, Kari. I did visit that thread. Very interesting journey. I read down 3 more posts and found this especially helpful as well:

    "Wolfgang, you need at least two steps (Vista & Seven) between XP and 10, the Eight can be bypassed:

    • XP can only be in-place upgraded to Vista, not Seven or later
    • Vista can be in-place upgraded to Seven but not Eight or later
    • Seven can be in-place upgraded to 10
    • Ergo: XP to Vista is a must, as well as Vista to Seven but then you can bypass the Eight and jump to 10"

      Me-This is AWESOME!
      For the convenience of new readers, here's the big-picture constraints from your post that you noted must be met:

      "Certain rules apply to an in-place upgrade:
      • The bit version must remain the same, a 32 bit Windows can only be in-place upgraded to another 32 bit Windows, a 64 bit only to 64 bit
      • The language version must be exactly the same, Finnish Vista cannot be in-place upgraded to Swedish Windows 7, US English Windows Seven cannot be in-place upgraded to UK English Windows 8
      • The Windows edition must remain the same or be superior, for example Windows Vista Home Premium can be in-place upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional or Ultimate but not to Windows 7 Home Basic or Starter


      If and when all three conditions apply, you can in-place upgrade and keep the installed software (subject to compatibility with new OS version)."

      You definitely rock.

    A totally trivial fact: the highlighted part in above quote is no longer true in Windows 10. You can in-place upgrade Windows 10 to a later build with any localized version of the same base language, for example upgrade a Swedish (Sweden) Windows 10 with Swedish (Finland) version, or English (US) version with English (GB, also known as International) version, or French (France) with French (Canada) version.

    In these cases, base language remaining the same, you will get a warning about the display language being changed, but if that's OK you can in-place upgrade without issues keeping your installed software and data. In screenshot this warning as shown when trying to in-place upgrade Windows 10 Build 10586 EN-US with Build 14291 EN-GB:

    Click image for larger version.

    It still remains impossible to in-place upgrade changing the base language.

    Kari, I've decided to upgrade my PC to Win 7 64-bit (which I'll have to purchase) & get a new laptop when I can afford one I'll really appreciate. Should the Win 7 package specifically say that it is an upgrade, or can I just install a "full version" like "Windows 7 Professional SP1 64bit (OEM) System Builder DVD 1 Pack (For Refurbished PC Installation)" (see example below-I pray this is OK to include-If not please tell me and I will click "Edit Post" & delete it).
