    you probably have citrex metaframe installed (lan connection and management stuff), which prevents the upgrade

    you have to remove that software, do the upgrade, reinstall the software

    ps...your browser tool bar is an embarrassment...get it down to the tab bar and one or two more bars

    look in the all prograns list for the citrex...back up whatever you need to back up from the program, then remove the program...the upgrade should work after that

    Should work, unless it's o.e.m.

    I know my xp pro upgrade disk was an upgrade from ME retail.

    Didn't realise M$ allowed o.e.m. upgrades also, must keep that in mind.
