Upgrade Win7 starter using win7 upgrade software for Vista?

I have 2 netbooks with windows7 starter edition on them, I reently purchased an upgrade family pack from Ebay and mistakenly didn't releaze it was software to upgrade from Windows Vista to Windows7 Home Premium edition. Before I break the seal, I was wondering if this would work, can I use this upgrade software(Vista to Windows7 Home Premium), to upgrade my windows7 starter edition to full Home Premium or will it not work correctly.
I appreciate any help offered.
Thanks

Try using Anytime Upgrade which unlocks the extra features in about 10 minutes.

Type Anytime in Start Search box, start process, see if it will take the Upgrade key as it has worked for others.
