XP Pro upgrade error

By focused ·
I must upgrade from Home to Pro, but when I put the upgrade disk in I get a message saying it can't be done because the upgrade "functionality" is not enabled (or something stupid like that). Can anyone help?

What is the exact error message, something like that just doesn't help us to help you.

You might try this;

On your system, click on ?Menu Start? and select ?Run?

Type ?cmd? in the open window.

Then type below command in MS-DOS:

Del c:\Windows\System32\CatRoot2\edb.log.

Finally relaunch windows update.

Or you may need to create a disk with SP2 or SP3 slipstreamed into the Upgrade CD.

Nlite makes this very simple;
