How to check if your computer hardware will support upgrading from XP to Vista.

Before you upgrade your Windows XP workstations to Windows Vista, be sure to check whether the hardware will support the upgrade. To do this, use the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor. Be sure however to download the latest version of Upgrade Advisor from the Microsoft Download Center, and be sure to plug in any peripherals such as printers, scanners, and so on before you run the utility. To run upgrade advisor, you need to be an administrator on your XP workstation and you need to have Internet connectivity. You also need to have the .NET 2.0 Framework installed and MSXML 6.0, which Upgrade Advisor will prompt you to download and install if you don’t already have these components installed on your workstations.
