This is from the notebook after upgrading ti Win7 Home Premium. All seems ok except I can't seem to get my M$ Outlook to work. Anybody else had this problem? I have waited thru all the updates and can't launch my Outlook program.

Have you been getting any error messages when you try to run it? and have you tried uninstalling/then reinstalling outlook? some pointers:

1 Try holding down the Ctrl key as you start Outlook to make it start in Safe Mode.
2 Try creating a new Mail Profile in Control Panel | Mail.
3 You can't have two versions of Outlook on the same PC (unless you are using the Home & Business edition of Office 2010 Beta which is virtualised using the new Click to Run technology.)

Well actually I had to call M$ on this one. I needed to run the updates again for my Office 2003 pkg and bring it up to SP3. Then several other updates to do. Then re-ran the transfer wizard and all is well. I am going to run this machine on Win7 for a week or so before I do the others.

Let me ask this:

Can I use the files that I created on the external HDD to set up the new Netbook? I would be happy with a clone. I also have a usb transfer cable would that be the way to go?

I dont have much experience with cloning, but from what I hear it works very well with restoring a computer. However, if your using it to set up a new computer however, if you dont have 2 windows license keys-you may have a problem as thats against copyright laws. If both computers are licensed with the same version of windows, I dont see a probem though, you can change license keys from inside windows, and as far as the data cable is concerned, it should work-but Im not sure, perhaps if someone else here has more experience with this sort of thing.

<<I can upgrade all three of my machines with the license>>

Just to clarify...yes, you can install either version (32-bit or 64-bit) of Win 7 on 3 different systems, with the family pack, using the same license. I purchased one last year, no problems installing or activating on any system.

Just a note...there is no real upgrade going from XP...the result will be a clean install of Windows 7.

Thanks Louis Yes I understand that also. This is the first of three machines I am doing. I am waiting for a new RAM stick for the next one which is the new one. I am going to hang back on the desktop till I see how I like this OS.

Once I figured it out the transfer Wizard worked nicely.
