    Well, perhaps I spoke too soon about Laplink. So far, I have had to re-install everysingle program with the exception of Office 2007, MapPoint,and Quicken. Although it was only $15.00, and at least it got those two right. So maybe I shouldn't come down too hard, as those were the biggies.
    Here is another tantalizing tidbit of trivia to titilate your tastebuds.
    I updated the drivers for my HP printer, and it automatically installed the Yahoo/HP tool bar, with no opt out. Keep in mind that this installation was from a web download and not from a CD. But how dissapointing from HP.
    Thanks John

    In a previous post I mentioned that I had used it in going from XP to Win 7 and that it did indeed to its job, and it did, Just not as thorough as I thought it would. All of the Microsoft programs worked, Office, and MapPoint, as well as Quicken. Every other applications I had to reinstall to get them to work correctly.
    Thanks John

    Did you get a new version that was designed to work with Windows 7?

    Most of these type of programs needed to be updated to match the NEW file structure, and yes, Windows 7 does have a new file structure to some degree.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Other than my NeatReceipts program I just had to delete them and reinstall. NeatReceiptson the other hand even changed file formats and I had to FTP the backup files to them for conversion. Made no sense to me as to why they did that. Oh yea and the lady told me (and this was yesterday) that Windows 7 wasnt even available yet!. Sheesh!. I FTP'd my files to them and got them back and am back up and running. Oh yea! and I forgot to deactivate my Adobe Acrobat 7 too. That was fun, but Adobe was cool about it.
    Thanks John
