  • Hi,

     

    First, I would like to confirm that if you are trying to use the Windows Anytime Upgrade to upgrade the Vista Home Premium to Ultimate edition.

     

    If the above is the case, please understand that Windows Anytime Upgrade is no longer available for Windows Vista.

    Reference:

    Upgrade to another edition of Windows Vista

    Regards,

  • You would be better off just upgrading to Windows 7 Ultimate.  Even if you were to upgrade to Windows Vista Ultimate, you can't then upgrade to Windows 7 Professional.  Only Windows 7 Ultimate edition can perform a direct upgrade from Windows Vista Ultimate edition.
