Windows XP has reached end-of-life, with end-of-support due April 8, 2014. To ensure against data loss, migrate your Windows XP applications now. Here are five tips:
Tip 1: Use Windows toolkits
The Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) is a collection of tools to help you customize and deploy Windows 8 across more than one computer. I recommend moving to Windows 8 (more on that later) but there’s also a version for Windows 7 if that’s your choice. The tools assess your Windows XP installations, inventory applications, report any trouble spots (i.e. compatibility issues), and then create upgrade images.
