    Friends, kindly help to advise me pls. I ve 7264 now and it's activated. I got the 7600 iso now. I want to upgrade it. How?
    Can i just upgrade it then all of my programs remain?
    If i upgrade, can i mount the iso of 7600 to an virtual drive? If i don't want to burn an Dvd.
    What is the cons of upgrading comparing with fresh installation?

    Thanks for yr help before hand

    Usually all works without problems, however there is a higher chance that something could go wrong (apps not working etc.) when upgrading than a fresh-install.

    If you upgrade you will lose the shell integration stuff.
    Also the activation is gone

    And a upgrade will take a lot longer than a fresh install

    Thanks all friends. I'll consider on upgrade or fresh install. For sure i'm gonna move to 7600.
    Activation? Just use the Toolkit 1.7 something. You may search it ha

    No Go For Me

    Usually do a clean install,but tried upgrade from 7260 to 7600.Decided to let M/S,do a download update,which installed a 1300Kb's file ???Everything seemed ok during upgrade,except that last time on Win 7 it took over 2 hours,this time only 1 hour.As usual my graphics was all shot,800x600 resolution,and all my previous programs were gone and all packaged in old Windows ,so on updating drivers,restarted.On boot got dual boot of Win 7 and go back to old Win 7.Decided to go back,and re-installation saying update failed and reverting back,which it did in about 5 minutes.Everything back as before,breathed sigh of relief...So definitely not advisable to upgrade.

    if you had the option to go back to previous version update was not done yet, thus the reason nothing was working.

    Me too, in fact some of the upgrades worked better than clean installs. Who'd a thunk it?

    ETA - Using Acronis True Image, I keep constant backups of my drives - just in case.
    So far the only problems I've had have been me.
