Re: Tough words about GUI

So you think that not having direct access to two of the more important topics in Help would be better in terms of usability? :roll: Even though I don't use these often, I find it quite handy to be able to do so! I do. Now those topics could be extracted and put in the root of the CHM file, so they...

Re: OT: Migrating from XP to Win7

Thanks for the support, guys! :D I just did some looking around at atelco and now I'm spoiled concerning the box: I MUST have the Coolermaster CM690 ! :P Would this work?: 1 Box: Coolermaster CM690 76,63 € 76,63 € 1 Processor: AMD Athlon II X2 240 Box, Sockel AM3 50,50 50,5 1 MainBoard: Gigabyte GA...

Re: OT: Migrating from XP to Win7

While I'm practicing cost-cutting: the System Builder version of Windows 7 Professional is EUR 135,70 while the full retail version is EUR 279,-. The disadvantages of the System Builder version are that it gets tied to your PC (specifically your motherboard: if your motherboard dies, your license di...

Re: Another Win7 (and possibly Vista) related Request

I still don't have W7 but I wonder if here's a possible solution for the original request of the thread: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb756929.aspx If I added requireAdministrator via manifest like this: <!-- Identify the application security requirements. --> <trustInfo xmlns="urn:schem...

Re: OT: Migrating from XP to Win7

You can think about starting with 1*4096MB - that's 109€ less. And can add whis whenever you need. Maybe cheaper till then... You could indeed: the motherboard has 4 slots while the memory sticks are 2 GB each, so installing just one kit leaves 2 slots open. A slightly cheaper option would be the 4...

Re: OT: Migrating from XP to Win7

They don't do custom builds? They do! I'm not a hardware geek enough (you might have guessed by now) to know what's possible. Say if I want 8 GB max RAM, more than 2 SATA, virtualization -- would there be a clearly cheaper solution than the "4media! AMD Phenom II X4 940" (599,-)? I'm already almost...

Re: OT: Migrating from XP to Win7

The example from nas8e9 has quite a fast processor (x4) and very strong power supply (600W!) Does this mean almost double electricity costs? The smaller one, AMD Athlon64 X2 215, with 2 SATA places, can I use 2 SATA HDs here (and exchange the SATA DVD with an IDE DVD)? Per Compucase's website , the...

Re: OT: Migrating from XP to Win7

So we are going from 319,00 € to 599,00 €, almost double price for possible extra 4GB RAM and some spare SATA... hmmm, thanks anyway! I knew there was a problem with trying to spend other people's money... :D Seriously, I don't know your budget or how long you expect to keep this computer running. ...

:) Just keep talking, what you think of this one: http://www2.atelco.de/articledetail.jsp?aid=27220&agid=608 BTW, your say " 0 SATA-connectors " but you mean "2"? I don't know much about history, uh hardware, but this is buffling... Sorry, I meant 0 SATA- connectors *spare*: both the single HD as w...

Re: OT: Migrating from XP to Win7

My current plan is AMD Athlon64 X2 215 AM3 . You probably can make it through the German bits: http://www3.atelco.de/articledetail.jsp?aid=28838&agid=610 Assuming it's this one , it does support virtualization. What would bother me, is the limit of 4 GB; that's pretty much the minimum to use a 64-b...

Re: OT: Migrating from XP to Win7

Update of my state of mind: I will get myself a completely new computer with Win7 Prof 64, plus a bag of drugs to get through installing and configuring about 200 softwares. :mrgreen: I'm not equipped to give pharmaceutical advice, but as far as processors are concerned it might be useful to get on...

Paragon System Upgrade Utilities 2010 and also Laplink PCmover. I have no experience with either.

Re: OT: Migrating from XP to Win7

The nice thing about the Professional (and Ultimate/Enterprise) version of Windows 7 is that it comes with the right to use Windows XP Mode with Windows Virtual PC . That way older software (say, VB 6.0 ~ 1998 :D) can be run in the Windows XP Mode VM, while modern apps profit from the additional me...
