    Hi,

     

    My name is Nick, as i'm sure you can guess from my username.

     

    I have quite a bit of experience with Windows, right from the beggining. And during the last few years, with Small Business Server 2003. Also more recently with Windows Server 2003 both 32 and 64 bit versions. I'm just getting to know Vista.

     

    The reason I'm here today is because I need an answer to what I thought would be a simple question, but I cannot find a definitive answer on the various Microsoft and Technet sites.

     

    Stated simply it is: - Can I upgrade the 180 day evaluation copy of Windows Server 2003 32 bit Standard, using the OEM version. I really do NOT want to re-install, i.e. re-format, because of installed applications.

     

    I already know that I can upgrade using the retail version, but I can't find anything that says cleary 'Yes you can upgrade using the OEM version, or 'No you cannot'. And, of course, I need to know! Please

     

    Thanks

    Nick
