Windows 7: Upgrade from Vista HP64 to 7 Pro64?

Upgrade from Vista HP64 to 7 Pro64?

I was to find that I couldn't do an in place upgrade from Vista Home Premium (64-bit) to 7 Professional (64-bit) after I'd already bought Professional. It seems that I can do an in place upgrade to either 7 HP or 7 Ultimate, but they skipped over Pro.

Is there some workaround for this, or failing that some way to reliably back up my applications and data?

I have already either upgraded the incompatible software, or uninstalled it, so I only have compatible software left on my Vista HP64 system.

Why not just back up your data, install the new OS, and then install your apps and restore your data? If a person can't do this manually, then it might be a good idea to have a friend look over your shoulder while doing this.
