move apps

Hi I have just added a VM running tiny11 and I want to move apps from my existing windows 7 VM to my new Tiny11 VM, how do I do this? Hope someone can help.

Many thanks.

Not sure what OS 'Tiny11' is, but with nearly any OS, if you want to add an application you need to install it.  Just like you had to install it on Windows 7.

Hi, OK guessed this was what I might need to do, but was hoping not.

Many thanks

Having said that, you should be able to copy any/all of your data files to the new VM.  Easiest method might be to attach the existing Win7 virtual disk as a second disk to the new VM, boot up and copy files to the new disk, shutdown and detach the Win7 disk once done.

BTW, Tiny11 is a version of windows11 with all the bloatware taken out. The image is around 3.8GB.

You would have to ask the Tiny11 developers those questions, or give it a try on a VM.

It supposedly is a stripped down Windows 11 x64 without "Microsoft bloatware".
