Viet - MS Office Tech :

Viet - MS Office Tech :

Sorry, all programs have to be reinstalled. Do you still have the office disk?

perhaps- in a godforsaken storage unit- it will be hell to find

JACUSTOMER-v4lxt428- :

I am pretty angry ay Microsoft for not putting this up in CAPITAL LETTERS: "YOU WILL HV 2 RELOAD ALL PROGS"

JACUSTOMER-v4lxt428- :

I know that's not ur dept

JACUSTOMER-v4lxt428- :

but am frustrated - greatly

Viet - MS Office Tech :

Sorry about that, actually, when you upgrade to windows 8, it does tell you that it can only keep your files, not programs.

JACUSTOMER-v4lxt428- :

I have spent a week trying to solve this problem

Viet - MS Office Tech :

Also, please notes Apps are different than programs.

JACUSTOMER-v4lxt428- :

O man-just another "suck it up moment..." pretty hard to swallow...might get a Mac

Viet - MS Office Tech :
Upgrading from …What you can keep

Windows 7

Apps, Windows settings, and personal files

Windows Vista

Windows settings and personal files

Windows XP

Personal files

Viet - MS Office Tech :

Sorry about that. If you upgrade Mac, you'll have to reinstall applications/programs also.

Viet - MS Office Tech :

For your programs/product keys you should keep records; let's say your computer brekas down, then you cannot reinstall

JACUSTOMER-v4lxt428- :

doesn't say "cant keep $300.00 Microsoft products-

Viet - MS Office Tech :

Sorry, it does not say what you can't keep, but it does say what you CAN keep

JACUSTOMER-v4lxt428- :

how shortsighted...as I said - a suck it up moment..maybe its time for a Mac

Viet - MS Office Tech :

OK, well, it's different, so it will take time to learn, just like learning from windows 7 to windows 8

JACUSTOMER-v4lxt428- :

I am sorry to be taking this out on you- I know ur just another soldier-

Viet - MS Office Tech :

No problem.

JACUSTOMER-v4lxt428- :

how about this: refer myt complaint to the "higher ups-" I know I am not the only one going thru this...

JACUSTOMER-v4lxt428- :
