Volume License Upgrade to Win 7? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was a happy early adopter of XP x64. I purchased the full version and it came on a CD with all the security features and in big letters, "LICENSING'. I've since come to understand that the vendor sold me a 'Volume License' CD, although that wasn't mentioned on their site. It runs fine, and I can use Windows Update and it validates fine with other updates (DirectX, WMP), but it never asked to be validated.

    I purchased the pre-release upgrade to Win 7 Home Premium without thinking about my XP x64 being a volume license edition. Now I'm wondering; will this upgrade path work?
