If you are planning to upgrade to Windows 7 then Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor will be very useful for you. With the help of Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor you can scan your PC to see if it is ready for Windows 7 and it will also tell you about any known compatibility issues.

Currently Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor is in a Beta stage and is just around 6MB. Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor scans your computer system, programs and devices to check if your PC can run Windows 7. After a few minutes it generates a report which will let you know if your PC meets the system requirements for Windows 7. Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor will also show you if there are any known compatibility issues with your programs and devices. Moreover it will also provide guidance on your upgrade options to Windows 7.


If you are interested in Windows 7 then you can check if your computer is Windows 7 ready. I used Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor personally to check if my Vista laptop is ready for Windows 7 upgrade. Though it had taken a quite amount of time it had finally shown me the report saying that I can upgrade to Windows 7 from Vista happily.

Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor works with Windows 7; Windows Vista; Windows XP Service Pack 2 and requires .NET 2.0 Framework or higher if running on Windows XP.
