Import and export of data

The import and export of data is the automated or semi-automated input and output of data sets between different software applications. It involves "translating" from the format used in one application into that used by another, where such translation is accomplished automatically via machine processes, such as transcoding, data transformation, others. True exports of data contain data in raw formats otherwise unreadable to end-users without the user interface, designed to render it. Import and export of data shares semantic analogy with copying and pasting, in that sets of data are copied from one application and pasted into another. In fact, the software development behind operating system clipboards concerns the many details and challenges of data transformation and transcoding, in order to present the end user with the illusion of effortless copy and paste between any two apps, no matter how internally different; the "Save As" command in many applications requires much of the same engineering, when files are saved as another file format.

The ability to import and export data has large economic implications, because it can be resource-intensive to input data in non-automated ways, because lack of interoperability between systems unable to import or export data between each other causes stovepiping and lack of opportunity and efficiencies such as those seen in, for example, mash-ups.

Windows Anytime Upgrade

Windows Anytime Upgrade is a discontinued component of Windows Vista and Windows 7 that enabled users to upgrade their editions of Windows. Pricing for upgrades purchased through Anytime Upgrade was reduced when compared with traditional retail packaging. In Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, the feature was re-branded as Add features to Windows and was used to purchase an upgrade license to the Pro edition of the operating system or to add Windows Media Center to an existing Pro edition installation. However, support for this feature in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 was dropped on October 31, 2015. Windows Anytime Upgrade was in development prior to the development reset of Windows Vista known by its codename "Longhorn." A preliminary version of the feature can be seen in build 4093. On February 26, 2006, Microsoft announced the editions of Windows Vista to be released to retail and original equipment manufacturers. After this announcement, various technology-related outlets reported that Anytime Upgrade would enable users to upgrade to successive editions.

All editions of Windows Vista, excluding Enterprise, are stored on the same retail and OEM optical media—a license key for the edition purchased determines which version is eligible to be installed. When first announced, Anytime Upgrade enabled users to purchase a digital license from an online merchant to upgrade their edition of Windows Vista. Once a license had been purchased, a user's product license and other information would be stored within a user's digital locker at the Windows Marketplace digital distribution platform. A user could initiate an upgrade to the edition for which the license was purchased either through components stored on the hard drive by the OEM of the personal computer, through an Anytime Upgrade DVD supplied by the OEM, or through retail installation media compatible with Anytime Upgrade. If none of these options were available, Anytime Upgrade provided an option for a user to purchase a DVD online and have it delivered by mail. Microsoft released retail packaging for Anytime Upgrade.

The retail products were made available during the consumer launch of Windows Vista on January 30, 2007. The initial version of these products included only an upgrade license, but this was modified in May 2007 to include both a DVD and a product license. In an effort to streamline the upgrade process, Microsoft announced that digital license distribution would cease on February 20, 2008; as a result of this change, users would be required to purchase the aforementioned retail packaging in order to use Anytime Upgrade functionality and Windows Vista Service Pack 1 omitted the option to purchase a license online. DVDs for Anytime Upgrade were only produced for Windows Vista. Anytime Upgrade in Windows Vista performs a full reinstallation of the new product edition while retaining the user's data and settings; this process can take a considerable amount of time, up to a few hours. Anytime Upgrade in Windows 7 no longer performs a full reinstallation of Windows. Components for the upgraded editions are instead pre-installed directly in the operating system.

Microsoft stated that an upgrade should take 10 minutes. Anytime Upgrade does not require physical media or additional software. Instead, Windows 7 requires a user to purchase a license online, in a manner similar to the initial functionality, removed from Windows Vista starting with Service Pack 1. Microsoft would release Anytime Upgrade packaging for Windows 7 at retail; the packaging, would only include a license for the edition to be upgraded, as Anytime Upgrade in the operating system does not require physical media. When first announced, Anytime Upgrade was available in the United States, Canada, EMEA, European Union, Norway and Japan, with Microsoft stating that availability of the program would expand after launch of Windows Vista. English version retail packaging for Anytime Upgrade was made available at the consumer launch of Windows Vista for North America and Asia-Pacific regions. In 2009, Ars Technica reported that Anytime Upgrade retail packaging for Windows 7 may only have been available in regions without broadband Internet access or where retail packaging was ineligible to be offered.

Anytime Upgrade was available for Windows 7 in select regions. Windows Easy Transfer Windows Vista editions Windows Ultimate Extras Windows 7 editions
