Upgrade To Ultimate From Professional


I had a copy of vista 32-bit, which was upgraded to windows 7 ultimate 64-bit (through vista x64 install disk that came with brother's pc), until i had a hard drive failure and am back to square one. I have now installed 64-bit windows 7 professional, again through a family member's install disk that came with his pc. This version, obviously, does not activate, however i was hoping to use anytime upgrade, and my product key to upgrade this to windows 7 ultimate.

Any suggestions?

Remote Desktop Win 7 Professional To Ultimate Problem

I am trying to rdp into my office laptop via remote desktop. I can easily rdp when i'm on the same office network but when it comes to using different networks it won't work. Port forwarding is set up on the office router- for the ip address of the laptop at work i'm trying to access from home. I have tried putting the public ip address of the office network followed by the port number in the remote desktop box. This does not work. I have then tried inputting the private ip address of the laptop i'm attempting to remotely access, followed by a colon and then the port number. This still does not work. Ny suggestions?

Win 7 Ultimate Upgrade From Vista Ultimate

Purchased windows 7 ultimate upgrade package since i have windows vista ultimate on my laptop. Purchased it online and after it was ordered, and before it was delivered, my @$*_$&_ hard drive failed. I cannot find the vista software that was preinstalled on the laptop now. Will the upgrade package work the same as a full installation? I really don't want to reinstall vista at all and then have to upgrade. Not to mention i don't want to tear my house apart looking for the vista disk if i don't need it.

Upgrade Home Premium To Professional

Background: recently purchased an hp desktop computer that came with windows†7 home premium 64-bit. Since then i upgraded to windows 7 professional via a retail copy purchased locally.

Question: is there a chance of any incompatibility/conflict/? In using a non-hp winodws 7 upgrade package? I seem to have multiple errors on the machine except in safe mode and cannot seem to run long before the system crashes.

Upgrade To Professional Through Student Discount Program

I am receiving windows 7 home premium via a free upgrade program. Can i upgrade to professional through the student discount program. As a college student some of the programs i will be using need to be compatible with windows xp, and the domain join is nice feature. None of these things are on the home premium edition. So i was wondering if it was possible to install the windows 7 home premium upgrade, and then use the student discount upgrade program on win741.com to purchase the windows 7 professional, rather than full price through the windows anytime upgrade.

Can I Re-use Installation Key To Upgrade From Premium To Professional On New Laptop?

I have purchased four computers, and return four computers because i've been told that the computers i have purchased would run the windows 7 professional in xp mode, and they do not.

I have now done research, and will return and purchase a new laptop which i am certain, according to the specifications, will run windows 7 professional in the xp mode.

My question is can i re-use the installation key to upgrade from windows 7 home premium to windows 7 professional on the new laptop i will be purchasing because i am returning the old one. Purchased the laptop on monday, the software, i purchased from a separate vendor when i purchased the initial laptop.

There is light at the end of the tunnel, but i know the new store will not trade my now invalid key code for the software i installed on the laptop i am returning to them.

Can anyone help me please?

Best Way To Upgrade To Win 7 Ultimate

Before vista 7 came out, i purchased windows vista ultimate from my local electronics superstore and it cost me a whopping 300 euros. I found that vista is absolutely rubbish and is ridden with bugs that have never been fixed in any upgrades.

The place i purchased vista from mentioned that i have 5 licenses with this software. I use this windows vista ultimate on 5 computers and it has worked fine for the last year. I know want to upgrade to windows 7 ultimate but i am being told it only works on 1 pc. Is this true?

I already feel like ive been ripped off and i shouldn't have to pay for windows 7 because vista is so bad and ive had it such a short time. I know intend to start a business where i could need windows 7 to work on maybe 20 pcs. What is the best way for me to purchase this at a good price. I´m dammed if i´m going to pay 300 euro for windows again.

Upgrade From Home Basic To Ultimate

I will be ordering a custom hp dv8t soon, and it will come with windows 7 home premium. I can purchase 7 ultimate for about 100 bucks after academic discount, so it would be cheaper than spending 200 bucks getting ultimate pre-installed. I was wondering if it comes with 7 home premium, can i purchase 7 ultimate and do an in place upgrade, or is a fresh install mandatory for this?I was thinking, maybe after i purchase 7 ultimate, go into windows anytime upgrade, would i be able to enter the key off of 7 ultimate i purchased from academic superstore and upgrade in place?

Upgrade Japanese Edition To Ultimate

I live in japan, i bought a new pc earlier this year with a pre-installed 'japanese 32 bit copy of windows 7 home premium' and i want to run 'windows 7 ultimate' - my japanese isn't good enough to understand all the windows 7 options.

I've been trying to use the upgrade anytime function - which apparently is available in japan - but for some reason it doesn't let me even look at purchasing an upgrade.

Where can i buy an upgrade? Can i buy an upgrade from another country? Do i have to buy a japanese upgrade? Will my japanese software run in a windows 7 ultimate where english is chosen as the main language?

Home Premium To Ultimate Upgrade

My questions is about upgrading windows 7 home premium to windows 7 ultimate. At his moment im using windows 7 home premium, but im thinking of upgrading to windows 7 ultimate. But im not sure wich version of ultimate i need to do this. I was thinking of buying the full version of ultimate because when i need to reinstall windows later, only this disk will be sufficient.

Later i noticed that there is an upgrade version of windows 7 ultimate, but its available at the same price as the full version.

So basically, i want to know if i can upgrade windows 7 home premium to windows 7 ultimate using the full version of windows ultimate, or do i need the upgarde version?

Is there someone out there who can help me with this problem as i am going round the twist. Okay here goes, are you sitting comfortably then i shall begin. I bought a new computer and it had o/s win7 home premium set up on it and the disk etc. Was with it, i wanted to upgrade to ultimate but was put off by the price, i heard of this site that was software4students and when i got on it was able to buy the upgrade at a much reduced price, anyway i have tried to upgrade but have failed because it asks me for a key to activate it but i have only the product key, it tells me that i have to do a clean upgrade not a custom one, i bought it because i could do a custom upgrade as i am not in the slightest pc wise or a tecky at computer work, i can do the usual stuff but the ultimate upgrade is sat on my shelf and after trying to contact software4students and getting nowhere then microsoft, who wanted £45 to a question, i don't think so, i am left with a feeling that i have been conned as i have very little money and it took an age for me to afford the upgrade as i cannot work due to being disabled, a clean upgrade means i have to clear my pc and do the upgrade but it will come to nothing as i will be asked for the upgrade key and i do not have it so any help will be so very welcome. One thing please keep it very basic and simple as i am not very pc wise and able to do programming stuff, hope someone can help as i would like to get this up and running.

Vista To Win7 Ultimate Upgrade Fail

I'm attempting to do an on-line upgrade from vista ultimate to windows 7 ultimate. The procedure took forever, and finally got to 83% of the final stage. The system went through another re-start and failed. It stated it is dumping physical memory to disk; attempts to restart; fails again and offers to restart in safe mode. I've tried to restart in normal and safe mode without success. It continues to loop through this and will not reset to either vista or win 7. Advice?

Vista Upgrade To Win 7 Ultimate Won't Install

I am on my third attempt to upgrade vista ultimate to windows 7 ultimate. I get through most of the install process (transferring files, settings, and programs) and then it fails and says my system cannot be upgraded. The system advisor does not find any issues before i start the install. The upgrade takes nearly 2 hours to complete before it fails which seems unusual based on all the other install times i have read about. I purchased the windows 7 ultimate upgrade as it was the only upgrade option for windows vista ultimate. I realize i could do a clean install but i would prefer to do the upgrade. The software is sold as being able to do this.system specifications dell laptop gen 2, 320 gb hd (200gb free), 2 gig ram. Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Roll Back 64-bit To 32-bit Or Upgrade To Professional

Roll back of 64 bit to 32 bit or better solution such as upgrade to professional? Recently i purchased an hp g72 260us which has one of the new i3-core processors, 4 gb ram, etc. After over 6-7 hours or trouble shooting, over 17 uninstall/re-install of software under different configurations i believe i have discovered the problem to be an update that occurred to my windows 7 operating system from 32 bit to 64 bit. While i have tried to roll back the updates, it has been to no avail so i am looking for a way to resolve either multiple software issues that are rendering my broadcasting, production, and internet usage impossible.

If i upgrade to professional, will it resolve my issues with my sprint novatel ovation u720 usb modem. Which by the way since the update, drivers will not load allowing the computer/os to recognize the device at all. Or is there a way to roll back to the 32 bit version without limitations to the performance. I am not gaming which is what i understand the major value/benefit of the 64 bit upgrade. Or suggestion to resolving these conflicts and others such as with adobe audition and other similar programs.

Upgrade Ultimate 32-bit To 64-bit

How do i upgrade my windows 7 ultimate to 64-bits. Would i lose my files? Or requires me to reinstall microsoft office or other programs? I had a vista ultimate and i brought an oem windows 7 ultimate. I have successfully installed it without any loss of data or program. However, when using my hawaii e-180, it was causing so much problems and i discovered the incompatibility. I had a problem using hawaii e-180 which do not have a 32-bits driver. However, microsoft has a driver for it but it is 64-bits. Basically i want to upgrade to 64-bits since my laptop is capable and to use the 3g modem for my mobile internet.

Compatibility Ms Office 2000 Professional

I am in the market of a new computer and need to make a decision which version of windows 7 to buy. What version of windows 7 will work with office 2000 pro? None or does it matter? I have used outlook 2000 as my email client and created an archive folder with many subfolders. Will they transfer and work without any problems to windows 7? Also, will i be able to open and edit the ms word and excel 2000 files i have created from within windows 7?†If not, would i first need to install office 2003 or 2007 or in the near future office 2010 to be able to import all my office 2000 data files and open them from within windows 7 that way?

Problem Upgrading From Home Premium To Professional

I had a problem upgrading from win7 home premium to win7 professional. The search for "anytime upgrade" yielded no results. In other words, it could not find anytime upgrade on my machine and that step was necessary to start the upgrade process. A clerk at office depot offered a suggestion that i did not get in two days on this forum and it worked. Click on the control panel and click on the "view by" button. Select large icons and one of the selections should be "windows anytime upgrade".

I selected the icon and entered my product key. Ten minutes later my machine is upgraded to win7 pro. S information, my win7 home premium was an upgrade from vista. This worked for me and i am passing the information on so that it might help others.

Win 7 32 Bit Professional Activation Error - Invalid License Key

I bought the 32 bit professional version of windows 7 through the offer for students that windows had a few months ago. According to everywhere i can see online, professional can be installed on two physical pcs. I installed the os on my laptop shortly after getting it, with no problems. After the rc trial ran out, i decided to install windows 7 on my desktop computer, from the same dvd that i burnt the . Iso to and so on, and i didn't have any problems, at all, during the installation. Now, though, it's telling me that i have 3 days to activate windows. I thought that it already was activated- i put the key in, and i haven't used it on any other computers, so this should by the second pc supported. However, it keeps telling me that it isn't a valid license key when i try to put it in now. Why is it giving me this problem?
