mistaecko,Glad to be the first commenter :) I just used it today, and was looking for others' experience, this page came up first (probably since you just added it).To the point, though, I don't think it competes with XPMode + VirtualPC - they simply give you a blank XP, no transfer at all. I bought it for the transfer specifically, and i don't care whether its virtualization or not. So I think the alternatives should be transfer software. What do you think?
My experience was very positive. I used Zinstall XP7. Got all my stuff moved successfully. The best part of the package for me that you get human support people answering the phone, without battling endless automatic voice systems.
I am disappointed with the Zinstall XP product. While it created the XP environment and ported everything, I am not able to print from the VM. I followed the procedures provided in the Zinstall XP user’s guide with no success. Support from Zinstall is non existent. The company will not answer any basic questions. It requires purchase of an additional $100 of support. I am finding that if I want to print, I have to re-install the programs in Windows 7. This defeats the purpose of the Zinstall XP VM. The company is aware of these issues but doesn’t disclose them when they sell you the product. They sell the product by promising that “everything will work just as before”. This is not true if you can’t print.When I called them to ask them questions, an answering machine asked me to leave a message. No one ever called me back. I wrote emails to technical support and got responses from their sales department telling me that drivers are not supported and that they would provide support for an additional $100. Their advertisement of their product is very misleading and I feel that I did not receive what I thought I was purchasing.
