Windows 7: Anytime upgrade key student edition !

29 Nov 2009   #11

I am reading several posts a day from students using Pro keys to unlock Windows Anytime Upgrade from Premium.

I wonder if this is peculiar to the DR key, like when they found out it was full retail instead of Upgrade advertised?

Does anyone else know if retail keys work in Anytime Upgrades? If so, could this be MS liberalizing this feature as they did with Upgrade to formatted disk?

Having an unlockable upgrade rather than in-place would be bigger business for them I'd bet. Why wouldn't they allow something so simple?
