How to Install PCmover

In this video we cover the Install of PCmover onto your computer.  As you can see from the video it’s very straight forward.

You may need to install Microsoft Visual if you have not already installed them on your computer:

      Simple enough. Setup the new computer. Then depending on your transfer needs you can use a program like PCmover to migrate all your old data onto the new computer. If you just have a few files and nothing else like programs or user accounts/settings that you want to keep you could setup a network and copy over the files manually or through a external media like a portable hard drive.
