    Thanks for your reply. Sadly, I do not see Pro in my System screen. I still have the original Pro upgrade for 8.0, but when I try to enter the new product code, I am informed it is incorrect. Any ideas on how to rectify this, other than shelling out for another upgrade (Grrr!)

    I'd say contact Microsoft. Sounds like you somehow got the wrong version if 8.0 Pro was on there prior to the upgrade.

    Thanks to all who replied. Popeye, thanks for your cmd line input. It definitely shows that I did not get the correct version when upgrading to 8.1! I'll contact MS to see what to do next.
