    Trying to upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 8.1 Pro


    Hello.

    Trying to upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 8.1 Pro.

    I have purchased the update and have downloaded WindowsSetupBox.exe.

    When I execute the exec, I only see a popup titled Windows 8.1.Setup that contains the message:

    Just a little bit longer

    We're going online to get a few things ready for you


    The install then hangs, nothing appears to be happening.


    Any suggestions.

    Thanks

    Stu

    To upgrade to Pro Pack
    No install files needed.
    Only the Upgrade key is need.

    Thanks for the reply. I lost my long winded response, but the short of it was a "stupid" user error. After I downloaded the correct file, it is upgrading now.

    Thanks
