Unable to upgrade from XP Home to Prof When Service Pack 2 Install

I would like to upgrade from XP Home to Professional. However, I get the
following error message: "Setup cannot continue because the version of
Windows on your computer is newer than the version on the CD".

Ultimately, I want to upgrade so that I can install IIS for the purpose of
developeing ASP.NET applications.

Thanks in advance,
Ryan

I don't think you can upgrade from Home to Professional.
As an alternative, you could try the WebMatrix project, it contains a local
Web server capable of running ASP.NET applications.

You can upgrade from Home to Pro, but if Home has SP2 and your Pro disk is
pre SP2 then you'll have to SlipStream SP2 into a Backup of your XP Pro
disk, since you have a newer OS installed than the one you're trying to
upgrade to.

Have a google for nLite to help you SlipStream.

Note that an OEM version of XP Pro will not upgrade XP Home.

Hi everybody, My problem seems a bit clichè but I could not work around. Well I read lots of MSDN papers and discussions, but my problem is a bit different from them.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
