To make it easier to migrate users from XP to Windows 7 or 8, I'd like to let an application run for several days to list applications that people use, so I know which ones are really important to them. Then, I'll have to find how to export data + install and reconfigure each application in their home.

I know about SysInternal/MS' Process Explorer but I'd rather something lighter and less intrusive. Is there a lighter alternative that would run in the background?

I'm a bit confused. Does this mean that applications that aren't used often enough will be removed from that user's client during the migration? –  Sandokan Apr 11 '13 at 7:52
Sometimes the best tools for the job are the tools you already know about. –  Ramhound Apr 11 '13 at 11:40
