    • 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.
    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).

    Just a quick note to report that I successfully used PC Mover Pro (LapLink) to transfer my Windows 10x64 install from an older Sandy Bridge PC to a brand-new Skylake PC in February. It worked quite well, and created a stable and workable runtime environment with most of the applications intact. I'm told it will do likewise for moving from 7 or 8.1 to 10 as well, but have not tried that directly myself. YMMV, as they say on the Internet!

    I've used it several times since I discovered it in its infancy. I just tested the newest version and it worked flawlessly to "fix" a broken source profile by migrating to a new destination profile and alleviate the "Start/Action Center/Edge" failure glitch. Just a few clicks and it's done. Sometimes good things come in small packages
