Is Your PC Windows 7-ready?


I tried checking whether my Asus F3H Series laptop is ready for the latest Microsoft operating software-Windows 7. My current system is Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 2 with Intel Celeron M CPU 520 @ 1.60GHz, 1.48G RAM.

First, i had to download the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor from the Microsoft official site and install it to my system. The executable file is 8.26MB.

In my case, i had to install first the Microsoft.NET framework 2.0 before i can proceed with the installation. It took few minutes before i finally had the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor on my system. I then proceeded with the scan and have these compatibility issues which i should address to before deciding to migrate to Windows 7:

As you see in above screen-shots, there are nine issues that i have to address to before considering Windows 7 installation while 3 applications are not compatible with(marked X). There are 2 system requirements passed, 17 devices listed as compatible, and 11 programs listed as compatible.

You can also run some Windows XP productivity programs under the Windows XP Mode in Windows 7 Professional and Ultimate editions.

Try checking your system for Windows 7-readiness. There’s no harm in trying. Anyway, you can uninstall the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor later.
