Upgrading Windows XP to Windows Vista. Technical paper. When it comes time to upgrade the computers in an office environment from Windows XP to Windows Vista you might encounter some problems with compatibility of software and hardware. To overcome these problems, it would be a good idea to run the Windows Vista upgrade advisor tool available from Microsoft. This simple tool will tell you what software or hardware will work and won’t work. Any software or hardware that is found not to work, the software will give you solutions to try or advise you to make changes in hardware or upgrade software. Before upgrading the computers operating system, you should make a backup of all documents, pictures, user settings, and anything that might be important. The only things that cannot be backed up are software programs that have been installed, because the settings of the software are hidden throughout the operating system. Backups can be put onto cd media or network drive for later retrieval. After you have completed the backup you can start the upgrade process.
