the good, the bad and the ugly
- Among Windows software programs there are two types of programs : those that are Qualified Applications and those that are Non-Qualified for a PickMeApp transfer. Currently PickMeApp is able to capture and transfer applications that use Windows Installer (MSI) or Inno Setup installers.
About 80% of Windows programs are Qualified Applications.
- Among Qualified Applications there are two types of programs: those that are captured by PickMeApp and those that are not.
About 99% of Qualified Applications are captured by PickMeApp.
- Among software programs captured by PickMeApp there are two types of programs: those that are successfully re-deployed by PickMeApp on an new PC and those that are not. Each release we increase number of successfully re-deployed programs.
About 85% of captured programs are redeployed by PickMeApp .
- Among software programs re-deployed by PickMeApp there are two types of programs: those that run on new PC and those that do not. Some of running programs may complain but usually they do not. (some programs may need a PC restart, while others may need some Workarounds)
About 95% of re-deployed programs run smoothly on a new PC.
If your program was among those 80%x99%x80%x95%=65% of good re-deployed Windows software programs, please let us know. We will gratefully update a list of programs confirmed to transfer by PickMeApp. All those programs are based on MSI on Inno Setup technology. Usually those programs are good and expensive : MS Office , Photoshop , QuickBooks etc.... Most of Windows Certified programs are supported.
Eventually, If you program was among those 45% of unlucky programs , please let us and others know. Most of those programs are free or open source. Those programs are usually have frequent updates. Their new versions can be easily downloaded directly from original sites. We think that It is better to reinstall a new fresh copy of such applications then transfer them.
PickMeApp has a solutions for programs which are not transferable. PickMeApp may install a fresh copy of programs if they are described in PAD format. Moreover the installation of several programs can be automated in silent ( unattended mode). Currently PickMeApp distribution includes an updated PickMeApp Collection of approximately 71 which installation can be automated. More applications can be added easily. (see more)
