    You can't upgrade from "Windows 8 the 90 day Enterprise Evaluation" using the "Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant". You can only do so from within XP, Vista, or Windows 7.

    Does "N Editions of Windows 8" mean this is an upgrade assi only for Editions without media Player ?

    BTW: Theese2 links "N Editions of Windows 8 - Microsoft Windows (Europe) (see also: N Editions - Microsoft Windows)" are the same and lead you across a MS page to the store ... = so no no assi download ... ???

    Odd. Not sure why it works in the post above and not in the tutorial for the same link for you.

    How can you RESET or START FRESH the COMPATIBILITY LIST that the Upgrade Assistant prepares?

    I ran it once and it gave me bunch of issues e.g. Older version of program - Update available.
    I resolved it by doing one of the following things and it still showing the old program:
    - Uninstalling/ Removing the program
    - Upgrading to latest version

    Its as if its caching the 'stuff' somewhere and I need it to ANALYZE FRESH.
