"How to use a later windows 7 product key on an earlier windows version." RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had just bought a Windows 7 Ultimate Product Key online. (only)  On my Windows 7 Pro, I tried to change the key, but it dis-allowed me because of the previous version I am  running on this PC. How in the world are you supposed use this valid key if this version will not allow you?  Please....this is mind boggling to me.

    From where did you purchase this Key? What type of Key is it?
    Note that the ONLY valid Key-only purchase is of an Anytime Upgrade.
    If you bought any other type Key only, then it’s not a legal Key.
