Do you have to reinstall programmes after doing a ME to XP upgrade?

If you do a straight upgrade most programmes will come out fine.

Thanks JM I have done 1 upgrade already on my laptop and I think I specified using another Windows directory because of some dire warning about all files being deleted. Hence the paranoia.

but you should do a backup before you do the install just in case :)

If you run the compatability wizard first it should tell you what programs you will need to reinstall.

From memory I needed to reinstall several from scratch.
