Summary:
How to transfer files, programs from Vista to Windows 7 or Windows 8? Todo PCTrans Pro can support music, pictures, compatible software movement from Vista 32-bit to Windows 7 64-bit.

Now I am using my Vista(32-bit) computer with 4 years, and plan to buy a new computer with Windows7(64-bit), for Windows 7 looks great. But if I have to transfer files, programs manually from Vista to the new windows7, I just refuse to change OS. It is possible to move files, programs from 32-bit Vista to 64-bit Windows7?

Over these years of selling Windows OS, Microsoft doesn't come out one way to manage installed applications between PCs. That's so disappointing. Although it released Windows Easy Transfer, it just supports the file migration from the old OS version to a new OS version(Windows Vista to Windows Vista/7/8/8.1 ). In the 3-party software market, there come out many excellent PC transfer tools like Todo PCTrans, PCmover, Zinstall etc. Among these tools, Todo PCTrans is a nice choice with high-performance and reasonable price.
