    Does the upgrade assistant have to be run on the OS that you are upgrading? I don't have the OS that I want to upgrade installed.

    Has to be run on the pc you are thinking of upgrading. The app is looking for hardware compatibility as in enough memory and processor spec's extra...

    I'd like to upgrade my copy of Windows Vista, which I haven't had installed since I replaced it with a retail copy of Windows 7. I'd like to keep my Windows 7 license so I can use it on another computer. Does this mean I have to install Vista in order to upgrade?
