Hi Rick,

I was wondering if there are any documents which are more specific towards migrating to Win7 using Altiris 7.1, in particular which might be of use to new customers of Altiris/SMP 7.1.

Hi Rick

I am also after some information the same as Kyle has asked about above. The company I work for has recently upgraded to Altiris 7.1 and I believe they will want to migrate to Win7 from XP quite soon.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards
