Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor



I'm guessing everyone has run this on their PC before buying Windows Vista.

So when you ran it what version of Vista did it tell you could run?

I ran it and it told me I could run Vista Business when I could clearly run
Ultimate. The upgrade advisor showed me that there were some programs that
were not compatible to run under Vista, ie; NIS2006. So if I uninstalled
NIS2006 and installed another AIO security suite then the upgrade advisor
would tell me that I can run Windows Vista Ultimate?

Yeah, I bought a new high powered machine and video card, 2 megs of
memory, etc, and the "advisor" said I could run Vista Home. I'm
running Ultimate.
