I have been thinking about upgrading to a new PC myself. I was wondering if maybe a program like Acronis could be used to copy programs and files from an XP machine to Windows 8 or 8.1? The new computer will have to communicate with an Outdoor Payment Terminal, so it will probably be a custom build. I used it to upgrade the hard drive on my laptop and it work flawlessly. Other than that I have no experience with Acronis. If it would work, it could be a wonderful solution for a lot of XP users like LOVEMYPC and myself.
