    Microsoft ate this company up and screwed all those who need help with the software.

    So what can I do to relocate files from one windows XP computer to another vista computer with the exisiting PC relocator? Upgrade, nothing? The number they list on the PC relocator box is out of service.

Microsoft bought Aloha Bob and shut the company, and its support sites down. Microsoft also removed all info from its website about this acquisition. The company's software was integrated into Windows Vista.

Without the ability to update the program, it is freezing. Refer to the below website for information on Aloha Bob.

I have a belkin easy transfer cable. How do i transfer photo's


On the old computer, run Vista's "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" to write one large file onto the old computer. The "export" file will contain your pictures.

Copy, via the transfer-cable, that one file to the new computer.

Run the "import" function of the Windows 7 Files and Settings Transfer Wizard to read the copied file.

I have PC LOCATOR from aloha bob, usedit on XP now want to relocate to new PC has VISTA giving me problem will it work with vista?


I did warn you about possible problems.
My only advice now is to stay in contact with support from them

I was unable to access the web site and the support email was actually a YAHOO one which in itself would ring warning bells in my head.

You might find an expert to help you and I hope you do but given that you were advised of problems with this software you might want to seek a refund from the supplier.

Are XP to VISTA transfers doable w/ V 6.2.10.14?


It is not advisable.
Relocator is not 100% guaranteed to even work xp to xp

You are better to use the Vista Easy Transfer utility which operates similar to the XP File and Settings Transfer wizard. That should get your documents email etc.

I have only ever used it a couple of times and was not impressed.
I have also seen quite a few reports of other users having problems too.

That said people do use it and it can work.

I have used the vista transfer tool and been quite impressed even though it can be a little slow on occasion.

Vista machine doesn't recognize drivers so can't transfer files from old PC to new one (with Vista). Any updates?


what do use to transfer? usb stick or network connection?or cd/dvd-r?
what os does your old machine have?


if both machines have valid and functioning OS(winxx) and both have usb 2.0 port,
and you are transferring just back-up of personal data (doc's, mp3's, save-games etc., use) that amount up to less than 1 GB, try using usb-stick or empty mp3-player for file swapping.

else burn the files from old machine using the hopefully available cd/dvd-burner in it and transfer to newer.

for easily transferring the whole content of old harddisk unaltered,
set up asmall win-home-network using dsl/lan-cable plus crossover adaptor
(wire up both machines to one-another) and stream old harddisk content to new machine

is it laptop to laptop-transfer and you are somewhat familiar with hardware?

remove harddisk from older and put into new one!

by the way: if you can have win xp pro installed on newer machine for same or less price of win vista, try to get it(you do need a bit computer expertise - but we all like learning -don't we?

good luck, if not satisfied or too much options for one time, just comeback to me!

sincerely yours

Older copy of alohabob will not update and will not work with pre


Unfortunately, AFAIK, Microsoft first bought the company then moved its WETC (Windows Easy Transfer Companion) off from its Beta. I am afraid your version now is just too old to be effective even if you will circumvent updates problem

You can consider to buy PCMover or MoveMe

Or you can try a free beta of PickMeApp - a tool for programs transfer. In combination with Windows File &Settings Transfer Wizard it can be used for a move to new PC, though it works best with individual programs.

PC Backup doesn't work with Windows Vista


You must check the package to ensure that the program is windows vista compatable. Please do note that Vista does have its own back software embedded. Simply type into the start search bar on the start menu backup and recovery.

Network connection


Try clicking Start then all programs (in XP) and select Windows update near the top of the first list that pops up (above the applications) and while updating you'll come to a point (after checking your configuration) that will allow you to add "Software Updates", then click on that and the latest IE7 should be there.
I hope I understood your question, and helped?
Good luck.
