I'm getting ready to move from a Vista machine to a new Windows 7 machine, and I'm planning to use Windows Easy Transfer to move my stuff over.
My question is, should I re-install all my programs on the new computer BEFORE I use Windows Easy Transfer, or AFTER? (Or does it even matter?)
I know that the Easy Transfer tool will generate a report of programs I need to re-install on the new computer, but nowhere can I find out whether it's recommended to install these before you run easy transfer, or after.
I ask only because I have a LOT of files and I want to do this right and save myself the time and effort of having to do it over again if I do it wrong.
