  • If your system does not have the option as shown below, then there is something amiss with your system.  Every system I have seen and/or built has this option.  The "Get more features..." is the Anytime Upgrade option:

  • No, since 7 pro does not offer it. You'd have to upgrade to either

    7 enterprise / ultimate

    8 pro / 8.1 pro / 10 pro

  • Can we upgrade win 7 pro to enterprise / ultimate with out formatting OS.

  • Yes. Just buy it, insert the DVD, start setup and select "upgrade". It will offer to keep files, settings and programs.

    You can use the Anytime Upgrade option to go to Ultimate from Professional.

    Microsoft does not support an upgrade from Professional to Enterprise.

  • It does not? I bet I have done that before. Or did I need to edit the registry to reflect another edition before upgrading? I would not feel guilty doing it since we own both editions.
