JSI Tip 9058. How can I view hardware and software compatibilty issues that were detected during the upgrade of your previous operating system to Windows XP?

When you upgrade to Windows XP, the Upgrade Advisor writes a report of the hardware and software compatibility issues that it detected.

After the Setup program finishes, and you are logged onto Windows XP, you can view this report by opening a CMD.EXE windows and typing:

"%ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" "%SystemRoot%\Upgrade.htm"
