Default Win2000Pro to Win7 upgrade: possible?


"PJF" wrote in message m...
I've been running Win200Pro for nearly eight years without a
problem.....until this past weekend. The PC crashed on startup. Had to do a
complete reinstall of the OS to get the PC running. I'm thinking it's time
to move on to Win 7. But I can't get the program I D/L'd from MS to check
the compatibility of my hardware with Win 7 to run; I get an error message
saying that Win 7 upgrade advisor setup is not a valid Win 32 application.
I'd like to know if there's anyway I can be sure my hardware is compatible
with Win 7 before spending $300+ for the program. Any suggestions would be
greatly appreciated.

Thanks and regards,

PJF




You don't have to spend money to try it out, you can install without a product key
it and run it for 30 days before activation is required.

Thanks, Dave. I'll follow up on your info.

Also, I've found that the Upgrade Advisor is just that, an advisor. If you do get it to run
don't regard everything it says as the final word.
I would just go ahead and install and see what happens, you've nothing to lose really.
(Provided you have backed-up your data of course!)
Good luck.
