Q: I assume this allows you to upgrade from w7 pro x64 to w8.1 pro without having to perform a clean wipe?
Answer by Dan on 9th September 2014
Unfortunately there is no upgrade path from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1 so it would be a fresh installation. Your existing files would be archived, but you'd need to reinstall any programs. -Danlevan

Q: Does this licence let me downgrade to Windows 7 pro?
Answer by Adam on 7th February 2014
Users have the ability to downgrade to Windows 7 Professional through downgrade rights which are only available on Windows 8 Professional, so this license would allow you to downgrade to Windows 7 Professional. -AdamL
