5.0 out of 5 stars Upgrade works exactly as advertised March 14, 2011

The upgrade worked as advertised and the power of the professional version is exactly as I was expecting. It allowed me to establish a virtual machine and run my XP version of Office without any problem so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solves networking problems. April 7, 2011
Access Method:Online Code| Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Was having problems with shared printers on the network since I upgraded my main desktop to Win 7 Home Premium 64. After searching the net, found the answer: Upgrade to Win 7 Pro. Hmmmm. Checked around and, sure enough, that was the recommendation in more than one site.

So I purchased the upgrade key, downloaded it, into my system and now I'm Pro and the printers now stay set as they should have with Home Premium. Glad to have it fixed, so thank you Amazon; but, MS, it never should have been a problem to begin with. Go figure. Allen

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a walk in the park September 17, 2012
Access Method:Online Code| Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Installing this upgrade for me was not as easy as everyone made it out to be. I should have read all the 1 and 2 star reviews first. I tried installing this upgrade through "Windows Anytime Upgrade" and it didn't work. It said, "Can not install, please try again." Whatever that means. So I tried about 10 times and it never worked. I then called the Microsoft Activation Hotline to verify that this wasn't a bogus code. After waiting on hold about 30 minutes I finally got an agent. He remotely hooked up to my computer and spent about 30 minutes fishing through my registry, rebooting, etc. trying to make it work and he couldn't fix it. Long story short, their plan was to have me put my original Windows 7 Home Premium disk into my computer and try running the upgrade off of that. So I did and after 45 minutes it finally worked. You just run the upgrade off your disk, key in your original code for Home Premium, and then key in the code for Professional. Total time spent doing this upgrade was about 2.5 hours. Hopefully this helps anyone who is in this same boat.

I thought I'd provide some details of what happens when you buy the online upgrade code, because that's where I had some concerns before I purchased. I'm not going to even attempt to review why I needed to purchase an upgrade code, etc. as the reasons behind why any individual person needs to upgrade their operating system are so diverse. I'm also not going to review the operating system itself, as this is an Upgrade purchase, and the review should be of the upgrade process, and specifically this is a digital delivery purchase so my review addresses the specifics of this purchase.

Note: You don't have to upgrade the computer you are currently working on, the person enters the code later on whatever computer is to be upgraded. In my case, this code was entered some time later on a completely different machine.

When you go through and purchase, the end screen will tell you that you have purchased and ask you to confirm that you wish to view your upgrade code on the screen. Note that you automatically receive an email from Amazon with the Order Confirmation, but this does not have your code in it.

You click that you agree and want to see the code. The screen then shows you the code directly on the screen. You can cut and paste it right then and there (that's what I did). There are three small buttons on the right of the code on the screen:

1. "Print" - Gives you a printable popup with the code and instructions that I've provided below. I printed it, print of course works fine. The email options did NOT work for me, as described below....)

4.0 out of 5 stars Running Windows XP as Virtual System under Windows 7 April 30, 2011

Access Method:Online Code| Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I had an older HP scanner which was not supported under Windows 7 Home Premium. By moving to Windows 7 Professional I was able to use the Windows 7 Virtual Machine feature and run Windows XP as a virtual machine under Windows 7. With this setup I was able to continue using my scanner.

purchased a laptop for my partner, it had windows 7 home premium. discovered that the acrobat pro she owned was not supported under windows 7, especially win 7 home premium X64. But it will work with virtual XP under windows 7, just download and run... except one has to have win 7 professional to get virtual XP mode... ok. no problem I thought, I have extra windows 7 pro licenses, we will just upgrade... oh no we won't, put the DVD in and launch, and win7 comes up saying that we have to wipe the laptop to upgrade to pro, no upgrade option, BUT we can use an anytime upgrade to go to pro...

So I ended up purchasing another windows 7 license just to upgrade to pro on her laptop. no software was downloaded, it was a matter of running the anytime upgrade wizard and putting hte key in and *poof* you now have win7 pro x64. if they could do that with this special license code, they could have just allowed regular windows 7 pro x64 license codes to be installed with the anytime upgrade wizard.

It's just corporate greed. plain and simple, but unfortunately MS has you by the reproductive organs if you have to run their OS for the software you have to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worked as promised June 23, 2012
Access Method:Online Code| Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I purchased 10 codes to upgrade computers I bought for our office. They came from Dell Outlet with Windows 7 Home Premium. I found out they will have to join a domain, hence the need for Windows 7 Pro. Every one of the 10 codes worked flawlessly. I think it is a good idea to use the online Windows 7 upgrade advisor to make sure your computer can be updated to Windows 7 Pro before buying this code.
