  • Can I use a Windows 7 Professional Upgrade ( off shelf in store package ) to upgrade from Windows 7 Home Premium  ( Not a clean install -- just simple upgrade) ?

  • What you are talking about doing is an AnytimeUpgrade. Widows7 allows you at anytime to upgrade your installation to a higher version. It is capable of doing this becuase all the components are actually installed by default they are just hidden and unable to be used. When you select to do an AnytimeUpgrade, it goes through and unlocks the locked features for that version.

    Take a look at this site
