Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor Scans Your System For Compatibility

Windows only: The Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor scans your PC to see if it can run Windows 7, and explains any potential compatibility issues.

Using the utility is about as easy as it gets—just launch it and go through the screens to scan your computer for compatibility with the newest version of Windows. At the end you’ll receive a report letting you know if your system can run Windows 7, and whether each one of your system components will be compatible as well—the upgrade wizard advises you to make sure all your devices are connected so it can fully detect any potential issues.

Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor Beta is a free download, Windows only. For more, make sure you’ve checked out our features on what’s new in the Windows 7 release candidate, how to upgrade to the RC, and how to enable XP Mode once you’ve upgraded.
