Upgrade from Win 7 Home Premium to Professional 64 bits

Hi all,

Just wondering if i need to do a clean install if upgrading from 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional 64 bits? Or am i able to just upgrade? Will it affect the current softwares on my PC and do i need to reinstall them? Thanks all!
