    Anyway to change Win 8.1 Ent. 64 (installed) to Win 8.1 Pro 64 w/ new


    Hi

    I am wondering if there is anyway to 'change' my Windows 8.1 Enterprise 64 Bit install (w/ a legit key via MSDN) to a Windows 8.1 Pro 64 Bit version by using another legit Win 8.1 64 Pro key and/or 3rd party app ?? I have several legit keys I can use via my Dreamspark program from school. I know I can wait a bit and just download Win 10 free on the 29th from DS, however, I was wondering if I could utilize the upgrade feature with another box I am using for testing.

    I guess the Enterprise version I had received from the MSDN awhile back is not eligible for the free upgrade due to the VLK issue.


    Can I use some 3rd party integration program to change Enterprise to Pro at this point in time?

    Tnx

    Tim

    NO -- you have to reinstall to switch to the other version.
