EDIT: If you want to upgrade the Windows 7 Home license to Windows 7 Pro using your Windows 8 license, you can do that only if you purchased it under the licensing program (i.e., Open Business) or if you purchased Software Assurance.
I bought my Windows 8 Pro at Staples retail store for $69.00 Does this now allow me to use the "upgrade anytime" option in Windows 7 and use the product Key that came with my Windows 8 Pro disks? I suppose that is worth a try. I have no idea about either the "open business licensing program" or Software Assurance. Neither option was explained to me when I picked up my copy of Win8.
