"Does basic problem determination, HW/SW, device/SW."

September 13, 2011  |  By poppop5735

 |  Version: Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor 2.0.4000

Pros

Points out what could be potential problems with hardware/drivers and application software running under Windows 7.

Cons

Responses can be vague. Points to potential problems. Insufficient and incomplete in pointing out the actions necessary in avoiding Windows 7 installation. Tells u only to contact manufaturer.

Summary

It could be a very useful product if it would assist you in determining if you will have installation problems and how to avoid them. Nice to run to check especially if there are no anticpated problems. In my judgment not very helpful in providing meaningful information to avoid installation problems.
