Bellevue, WA. December 2,
2009 -- Laplink
Software, Inc. has provided to Media Markt
a unique software product known as "Umzugshilfe"(or "Migration
Kit") to smooth the adoption of Windows 7 by Media Markt's customers.
"The dilemma Windows XP users are facing is becoming widely known;
Microsoft does not support a so-called 'in-place upgrade' from XP to Windows
7. Even for Windows Vista users, Microsoft supports upgrades only between
certain versions of Vista and Windows 7," said Thomas Koll, Laplink's CEO.
"Media Markt is the largest retailer of consumer electronics in Europe and
we are proud to be serving their customers in this manner."
Windows 7 reviews have been very positive, but with recent surveys indicating
Windows XP is still used on up to 70% of all computers, many users will
encounter difficulty in moving to Windows 7.
Software approached Laplink several months ago after discussing with Media
Markt the impact that the Windows 7 release would have on existing Windows XP
"Media Markt has millions of customers still running Windows XP.
When we learned these users could not upgrade to Windows 7, we looked for a
solution to present to Media Markt - and we turned to Laplink," said Olaf
Kehrer, Managing Director of O&O Software. "If an XP user wants to
upgrade their PC to Windows 7 without using PCmover, they are forced to copy
all their data to an external hard drive and then after they upgrade, copy
everything back. And after all that, they have to reinstall all of their
programs! PCmover removes the difficulty and makes the upgrade
With PCmover, the upgrade process is
1. Install PCmover, follow the Wizard and select
the"in-place" upgrade option.
2. Install Windows 7 (do not reformat)
3. Reinstall PCmover and follow the Wizard again.
To move to a new PC, install PCmover on both PCs and run the Wizard.
In either case, PCmover does all the work - automating what would otherwise
take many hours and could result in lost data or programs.
"Because PCmover supports in-place upgrades as well as migrating to a new
PC, we are recommending PCmover to all our Windows 7 customers, including all
our channel partners" continued Kehrer. "No matter how the end user
is implementing Windows 7, PCmover makes the move easy."
PCmover is the only software that can
successfully migrate applications, files and settings from an old PC to a new
PC. PCmover also is the only software that can perform an in-place
upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7.
"I credit Media Markt for realizing the problems their customerswould face
with adopting Windows 7 and looking for a solution," said Koll. "But
in this case, it is more than just Laplink. With input from Media Markt and
O&O Software, we together created the'Umzugshilfe' (Migration Kit) as the
total solution for upgrading to Windows 7. By including DiskImage with
PCmover, customers can create a full image of their PC or an archive of all
their data before they begin using PCmover for the upgrade or migration
Laplink has collaborated with O&O Software in the past and choosing
DiskImage to be included in the Migration Kit as a complement to PCmover was an
"O&O is a recognized leader in Germany for its imaging technology and
their DiskImage product is the perfect companion for PCmover. Customers
can use DiskImage to do a complete sector-by-sector image of their computer
before the upgrade or migration process is started," continued Koll.
"So,if anything goes wrong or they simply wanted to revert back to the way
things were, DiskImage provides that ability - a perfect image can be easily
restored. We think that gives Media Markt's customers peace of mind as they
move to Windows 7."
