From XP Home to XP Pro



Because of a couple of annoying problems that I have been unable to solve I would like to 'upgrade' my Home Edition to a Pro edition...

Do I need a Win XP Pro upgrade-CD or a Full Version-CD to do this? And I would like to keep my settings as they are right now...that is actually my main question:

when I upgrade to XP Pro will for example my Documents and Settings folder be erased or integrated into Pro edition? I don't wanna have to install every program anew into the Start menu...

Has anyone done this? Can you help me here?

Thanks in advance

I would never suggest an upgrade. My advise is to bite the bullet and start from scratch... upgrades are unpredictable at best.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
