    I thought it was something like that. I had heard that MS was going to put AlohaBob into the Vista update.



    However that STILL leaves me with no available update process.

    PC Ultra can't download the driver for the USB cable to Windows Vista!

    It gets to 60% download then shows an error message that it can't determine the configuration of the new computer.

    Is there any fix?

    Not able to download updates for PC Relocator either. New PC has Vista, but older PC has XP. How do I get the download to work or should I just go and buy an newer version of PC Rel?

From the MS Website...

REDMOND, Wash. — March 7, 2006 — Microsoft Corp. today announced it has acquired Apptimum Inc., which provides award-winning products that automatically transfer customers’ applications to new computers. Microsoft plans to use the acquired intellectual property and technology assets to provide customers of Microsoft® Windows® with the tools they need to simplify the transfer of their applications to their new computers. The technology acquired from Apptimum is expected to be a strong complement to the transfer experience offered in Windows Vista™ later this year.
“Our customers and partners have been asking for a much easier way to transfer their data and applications from old computers to new ones,” said Amitabh Srivastava, corporate vice president of Windows Core Operating System Development at Microsoft. “We’ve improved this experience in Windows Vista, and as a result of the Apptimum acquisition we will make it even easier for customers to transfer the applications that are most important to them.”
“Microsoft’s acquisition of Apptimum will dramatically extend the reach of our solutions to millions of Windows customers around the world. Windows customers will enjoy a significantly simplified computer setup process, and the innovative technology that Apptimum has built will contribute to a better overall experience,” said David Henrickson, co-founder and chief technology officer of Apptimum.
Apptimum, formerly Eisenworld Inc., was founded in 1998 and is best known for its market-leading Alohabob PC Relocator products. The first public release of a Microsoft product based on the Apptimum technology is planned to be an optional download for Windows Vista customers. Further details about the planned Microsoft product, including the timeline for delivery, are not yet available. Terms of the acquisition were not announced.

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.

AlohaBob PC Relocator....USB Driver for Vista


Microsoft bought Eisenworld. Both the Eisenworld and Alohabob web sites have been shut down.
You will NOT be able to update it.
AlohaBob will be incorporated into the Vista update.

Try updating all your UBS drivers:
Go to your "Device Manager" (Right click on ‘My Computer', select 'Properties', click the 'Hardware' tab, click the 'Device Manager' button. Click the "Universal Serial Bus controllers").
If there is some kind of a yellow "Warning" icon superimposed on the 'UBS' icon there is your problem!
If no "Warning" icons then try...
One at a time...
Double click on each of the devices that have 'UBS' in the listings.
Click the "Properties" tab; look for any "Warning" icons
Uninstall the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only. See instructions below.
Click on the faulty driver and hit the remove button, follow the instructions given by the program.
Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.
Go back in to Device Manager and Update all the Items listed under "Universal Serial Bus controllers"

This is the Company that made you product but I am unsure where they are. Look at this insert from Microsoft. Apptimum, formerly Eisenworld Inc., was founded in 1998 and is best known for its market-leading Alohabob PC Relocator products. The first public release of a Microsoft product based on the Apptimum technology is planned to be an optional download for Windows Vista customers.
