Upgrade from Home-> Ultimate (MAPS version)
Hi all

I've got a Microsoft Action Pack Subscription version of Ultimate. I'd like
to upgrade it over an OEM version of Home, my laptop came with. However the
setup says it can't upgrade, only install.

Does anyone know of a way to trick the installer to do an upgrade, so I can
avoid having to reinstall all the other software (office, visual studio etc
etc)?

I had a hell of a time finding the answer to this one. You have to uninstall
the service pack and then it will let you upgrade.
