A client of mine purchased a new computer that had Windows 7 Home Premium on it however they needed some of the features available with Windows 7 Professional. By purchasing a Windows 7 Professional key you can upgrade Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional in a very short amount of time. At first I thought it would require the disk to upgrade however you can follow the simple instructions below to upgrade Windows 7 using Windows Anytime Upgrade.
One of my clients uses VISIA medical imaging software from Canfield Imaging Systems for various forms of medical research projects. They have had the VISIA software and imaging station for a year or more and recently needed to upgrade the software to take advantage of some new features available in VISIA 5.0. The client’s VISIA installation was at VISIA 4.2 so it required a major update to get to VISIA version 5.0. Upgrading the software is fairly easy but it is important to make sure you have current backups before the upgrade begins. Follow the directions below to first backup your the Microsoft SQL Server, backup the VISIA files, and then proceed with upgrading VISIA 4.2 to VISIA 5.0.
