Recommend uninstalling programs before upgrading to Windows 7 message

Question

 

What do I do if I get the message “These programs might not work property after the upgrade. We recommend uninstalling these programs before upgrading” in a Windows 7 Upgrade Compatibility Report?

Answer

 

A compatibility report will appear during the Windows 7 upgrade process if Windows detects issues that might affect the upgrade. The report includes recommended steps to take, and a copy of it is saved to your desktop so you can refer to it later. 

 

If Windows finds hardware or software that's incompatible with the upgrade process itself, you'll see a list of the items and steps to take before you can upgrade.

 

If you get a message that you should uninstall a program before upgrading, you should cancel the upgrade, uninstall the program, and then restart the upgrade process.
