  1. Thanks for the replies. There are many positive external reviews of the 32-bit to 64-bit XP to Win7 upgrade with PCmover so I am going to give it a shot.

I have been using XPize 4.7 for several months and have the following questions: 1) Is there any reason to uninstall XPize 4.7 prior to the upgrade event? 2) If I were to uninstall XPize 4.7 in the next few days (well prior to the upgrade event)
