Laplink Software, Inc. announced today that its new version of PCmover®, designed to make it as easy as possible to set up a new Windows® 8 PC, has been shipped to all major software retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, Fry’s, Micro Center, Staples, Office Depot, Office Max, and more.

For several years, PCmover has been the number one selling application for PC-to-PC migration with over 95% share in U.S. retail. It’s the only software that automatically moves files, settings, and programs from an old PC to a new one.

“The process of upgrading a new PC or moving to a new one can be a major hassle,” stated Laplink’s CEO, Thomas Koll. “PCmover makes it simple. Plus, in this new release, there’s the added benefit of our remotely-assisted, phone-based Free Transfer Assistance.”

For consumers,PCmover saves an entire weekend of PC setup and configuration tasks, reducing the PC setup process to just a few mouse clicks. All e-mail, address books, pictures, music, videos, and even programs like iTunes and Microsoft Office are automatically copied over from the old PC and installed, ready-to-use, on the new PC.

For businesses, PCmover Enterprise promises IT departments the ability to manage migrations even for unmanaged PCs, with studies demonstrating savings of more than $300 for each PC upgraded or deployed. Migrations using PCmover for remote offices, subsidiaries, and non-standard PC rollouts that do not follow standard IT processes can result in cost savings in excess of $1,000 per PC replaced or upgraded.

“PCmover is also the only way to perform a complete upgrade to Windows 8 for existing PCs,” continued Koll. “Microsoft is simply not providing the upgrade paths that users need. It’s confusing and most consumers aren’t technical enough to know what upgrades will and won’t work. Many will flounder and end up losing valuable time and possibly irreplaceable data. PCmover solves this problem quickly and easily.”

PCmover is available at and most software retailers throughout North America, Europe, and Japan and comes with a full money-back guarantee from Laplink.
