I only know of TWO programs that do this... and until recently, I thought it impossible because of how deeply woven into the OS, file directory, and registry each software application was woven...

but now there's LapLink PCMover that will completely trnsfer all files AND installed software to a new system... even if its a different OS, impressive imo

I thought that it was the only one... until I realized that Acronis also has Acronis Migrate Easy which ALSO migrates installed software and program settings...

Does anyone know of any OTHER software capable of doing this? Its impressive imo... and worth way more than these companies are charging for it.

Yes impressive.

Comodo Programs Manager monitors program installations and registry activity for uninstallations. I never thought about it before, but it does seem like that could fairly easily be converted to a similar type of feature for creating backups for programs, including their registry entries. Not so sure about moving the programs to a different OS part, though. I'd like to know what's in doing that...what exactly has to happen to move a program from XP to 7 (or 7 to XP?) or whatever.

I wouldn't be surprised if Comodo were to develop migration as part of their backup program. Just back up Documents and Settings and selected programs and their registry entries. Guess it wouldn't be free..

Yea, direct cloning (including software) has been around forever (see Norton Ghost 8)...
but migrating software and files to a DIFFERENT OS is impressive...

imo anyway
