Microsoft unveils free Windows XP migration tool in advance of April 8th support shutdown

Well over a decade after introducing Windows XP, Microsoft is officially ending support for the aging operating system on April 8th. That’s despite the fact that as many as 30 percent of computer users may still be running Windows XP.

So Microsoft is outlining steps it’ll take to remind people to upgrade their software, as well as a free tool to help ease the transition.

Starting March 8th, Windows XP users who receive automatic software updates from Microsoft will see a pop-up alerting them that support for their operating system ends in a month. Folks who may have missed the company’s earlier warnings will hopefully catch this message.

Microsoft is also partnering with Laplink to offer a free app called PCmover Express for Windows XP.

Make a bootable USB installer for Windows

Making a bootable USB flash drive for Windows Vista and Windows 7 isn’t all that tricky, but it’s always nice to find an app that simplifies things. Not only does WinToFlash make the process about as easy as it can get, but it can also create Windows XP, Server 2003, and Server 2008 installers.

The default options make it easy to roll a silent Windows install, or you can flip the custom switch and specify the exact setup parameters you want to use.

The handy app also has one more trick up its sleeve: moving Windows Preinstall environments. PE discs can be extremely handy for troubleshooting and repairs, and being able to painlessly zap them over to a USB flash drive means not having to burn a new copy every time someone’s haggard old optical drive decides to chew up your CD.

WinToFlash is a free download and is totally portable. It’s an excellent tool to add to your USB-related utilities.

KUALA LUMPUR: Proton Holdings Bhd unveiled its first multipurpose vehicle (MPV), the Exora, to the public in a gala event here Wednesday night.
