Just followed the advice given in a previous article ("How to Upgrade the W7 RC to RTM Final Release") and it worked PERFECTLY!
What a godsend ... rather than having to re-install all my programs, by just importing the W7 DVD to my hard drive and changing one line suggested in that article, I was able to install W7 and every program, driver, etc. works perfectly. Even my desktop is identical.
Many thanks and kudos to 'How-To-Geek".
