Is it secure to upgrade a workstation from WinXP to Win7 RC1?
It's possibly not that excellent of a suggestion to make use of the customer's key workstation to examine Win7 in a manufacturing setting. Also if the installment winds up functioning, the Windows itself could not work with the called for applications despite having the XP setting.
So to address the last inquiry, I would not permit this till the compatibility has actually been examined on an additional computer system.
It has actually never ever been an excellent suggestion to upgrade windows. There is a great deal of fluff that get's left. Particularly missing a OS variation (Vista). Yet that claimed, It is just one of the examined circumstances for Windows 7. Your upgrade needs to function great yet no person would certainly advise it.
Would certainly you permit among your customers to do this?
Windows 7 is very advise upgrade. And also with Windows 7 XP Mode - you can be ensured that all your applications function penalty. (Although I have actually not made use of XP setting with all my applications yet however I have actually worked with the MED-V modern technology of Microsoft which is made use of in XP Mode).
