    Windows Easy Transfer Companion (Beta)
    Brief Description

    Windows Easy Transfer Companion enables you to automatically transfer your most important programs from your Windows XP-based PC to your new Windows Vista-based PC.

    Overview
    Windows Easy Transfer Companion enables you to automatically transfer your most important programs from your Windows XP-based PC to your new Windows Vista-based PC. The software will move more than 100 of the most popular programs, as well as many others that you may have installed. You have complete control over selecting which programs to transfer, so only the programs you care about will move. The software will alert you if some programs may not be able to transfer, or may not transfer with high confidence. Most security software is not able to transfer due to technical reasons.

    Easy Transfer Companion is designed to be used in addition to Windows Easy Transfer—which is part of Windows Vista and automatically transfers your data and settings. Connecting your two computers can be done with either an Easy Transfer Cable (available online, from retailers, and from PC manufacturers), or a home or small business network. If using an Easy Transfer Cable, you must first install Windows Easy Transfer on your Windows XP-based PC. By using Easy Transfer and Easy Transfer Companion you will be able to quickly and easily setup your new PC with all the data, settings, and programs that matter to you, so you can be productive on your new PC right away.

    Easy Transfer Companion only transfers programs from a Windows XP-based PC to a Windows Vista-based PC. Easy Transfer Companion is currently in Beta, and only available for the US market.

    System Requirements

    * Supported Operating Systems: Windows Vista; Windows XP

    Two physical PCs. The old PC must be running Windows XP SP2 and the new PC must be running Windows Vista – both in U.S. English.

    Both PCs must be connected via an Easy Transfer Cable or LAN.

    At least 200MB of free disk space.

    Must be run as a user with Administrator rights.

    For the benefit of any UK-based people reading this, the current beta only supports US-English Windows XP and won't install on a system set to UK English. As I found when I tried to install it here.
