Question - Win 7(3 posts)
maderaroja, an upgrade from XP to Windows 7 will require a new, clean install. Nothing from your current XP install will be automatically migrated to Windows 7. You can use Windows Easy Transfer to save some user and application settings and all of your user data files. After Windows 7 is installed, Easy Transfer can be used to restore those settings and files.
As for the applications, they will all need to be installed fresh on Win7. So for MS Word, you will need to install and activate it under Win7. If you have added a language pack to Word in XP, you will need to do the same in Win7.
See this upgrade information from Microsoft and you should run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor as recommended there.
