This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

The problem with 'upgrading' from say Windows 7 to Windows 10, is taking your existing software licences and setting with you. It's possible to do some manually of course. Laplink have been around for a very lomg time and are (apparently) the only company approved by MS to do this. I have been told that this version will allow you to go for instance from 32bit windows 7 to 64bit windows 10, of course this doesn't include the licence for Windows 10, Windows 10 has to be preinstalled This version included a special network connector for faster transfer between the two machines
This licence is one use, however five additional licences are avaiable direct from Laplink for £85 for.5 rather than £206.40

Also (stop press ) A downloadable version is available with licence for £25 from this link

Blast from the past. You used to get an parallel cable with this years ago to transfer via printer port.
For those on a budget macrium reflect has a free edition which can do this.

it' still free
Seems an expensive product for something that can be done with a little knowledge for free.
You can even buy a USB transfer cable for about £5-6 if you want to make things a bit easier.
of course this doesn't include the licence for Windows 10, Windows 10 has to be preinstalled


Let me tell you how to get Windows 10 for free:


1) Go to microsoft
2) Download windows 10
3) Install the version you want and...


That's it.


The only difference now between an activated version of Windows and unactiviated is now that an unactiviated version makes it more difficult (if not impossible) to change your background and after a few days it says "unactivitated" in the corner but no core functions are disabled.

Does this allow you to transfer between different versions of Windows ?

Yes as I said. People may misunderstand that you add these settings to an existing version of Windows 10

USB transfer can be slow. This includes a special network cable

Of software licenses and a few settings?
For those who want to do it the hard way, the main problem is, of course, the registry. There's some info here

Nothing special about it, it's just a network cable.
In my experience a lot of software licences are matched to the hardware (mac address, hd serial, etc), so can't be transferred electronically.

More than a few in my case. I used to list the installed software but gave up about a year ago. One is licenced only for a certain number of machines. Extra settings on Firefox. Licences can be stored almost anywhere. MS Office (2007) etc etc.Fortunately my multiple emails are all handled by thunderbird, so the whole can simply be dumped in the new version and I do want to go from 32bit 7 to 64bit 10

Is it just a standard cable? How do you know? I have one here
The old serial and parallel transfer cables didn't work unless you used their ones.

Because I have eyes & can read . Sure apparently you have to use their cable if you want/need technical support but as you can do it over your home network as well that means any old network cable will work. But as others have said there are plenty of ways to do the same for free.

I've looked into the 'other ways' myself. The ones I've found are not nearly as complete as this.

Their cable is faster apparently.
Apparently it will also transfer multiple profiles (as it happens, I have two) and printer settings, and transfer mutiple disks and is completely reversible for the copy, it can be reverted to the original.

Their cable is so magical it can change the physical properties of an ethernet card?

No of course not, but for a start it needs to be a crossover connection when directly connecting two pcs together. This by itself may make it faster. And as apparently the software needs to be installed on both machines, it may not be connecting by tcp/ip.

If you've ever looked at a lighting connector and thought it's just a simple 2*8 connector. It isn't' there's a mass of ics that the wires connect to before they actually hit the connection. Hidden inside the socket, I know, I've cut one open, just behind the pins. They're minute! These identify it as a 'real' apple connector and it negociates with the socket which pin to use transmit and receive on either side of the plug. The previous 30 pin connector was just a simple connector

Anyway I'm out of here it's hit -165 ATM, so obviously no-one here is going to listen to anything I say. Best of luck to all you do it yourselfers (^ ^)
