Purchases of new PCs always surge this time of year and so do the related setup frustrations...PCmover solves this problem and helps users get their joy back!

Laplink Software, Inc., announced today several ways they are helping families rejoice over new PCs this holiday season.

Although in Windows 8.1 Microsoft has eliminated their Windows Easy Transfer software for Windows XP/Vista users and has reduced its functionality to copying only data files for Windows 7/8 users, Laplink’s PCmover remains fully compatible with all scenarios. And now, Laplink is providing PCmover at no charge to those consumers left without a solution from Microsoft.

For several years, PCmover has been the number one selling application for PC-to-PC migration and the only software that automatically moves files, settings, and even programs from an old PC to a new one. PCmover also includes Free Transfer Assistance which provides VIP-level service throughout the entire PC setup experience at no additional charge from certified migration specialists.

“Purchases of new PCs always surge this time of year and so do the related setup frustrations,” said Thomas Koll, Laplink’s CEO. “The excitement of getting a new PC quickly gives way to the reality of having to configure the new PC with personalized settings, install new programs, and copy documents, files, videos, music, and more. PCmover solves this problem and helps users get their joy back! And with our Free Transfer assistance available 24/7, nobody has to worry about what might go wrong because an expert guides every step.”

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 provides 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.

“PCmover is fully compatible with Windows 8.1 and supports migrations to or from Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8,” continued Koll. “We have the right version available to every user – whether that’s PCmover Home, Professional, or Enterprise. And we offer pricing for single licenses, multipacks of licenses, as well as volume and site licenses. For those users desperately trying to move from XP or Vista to Windows 8.1 and are unsupported by Microsoft, we are even offering a full version of PCmover that’s completely free.”

While PCmover is perfect for the do-it-yourself person, Laplink Concierge is available for those who are looking for a less hands-on approach. Laplink Concierge is the only remote set up service that includes a complete transfer of data and applications to a new PC. A trained, professional technician walks users through the entire new PC setup process, including connecting a monitor, setting up Internet access, a home network, and other devices connected to the new PC. Laplink’s expert technician will finish off the process by remotely transferring all selected files, programs, and personal settings from the old PC to the new one.

PCmover is available at or Amazon, Best Buy, Fry's, Office Depot, Office Max, Staples, and other major software retailers in North America, Europe, and Japan. Laplink Concierge is only available at The free version of PCmover for users migrating from Windows XP or Vista to Windows 8.1 is available at
