After being stuck with a “temp” machine for about two years, I finally got a new laptop.
Now, everybody knows, how much time it takes to configure the new machine. You need to install applications, find the licenses, etc.
Especially developer are very picky and don’t take the standard configuration.
Using Windows Easy Transfer, Windows Vista makes it easy to transfer files and settings from one machine to the other.

But Windows Easy Transfer Companion can do even more. It can transfer entire applications, settings, licenses and all!
The program is not perfect, but it does about 80% of the applications. (your mileage may vary)

It is big help to get a new machine up and running in minimal time.
