Win95 - reinstall over?

The vendor installed an OEM version on my machine. I thought that I should pay for it so I bought the legitimate upgrade. I found very fast that I can not use it to make e.g. emergency disk or anything else and it's clear that I need to install the upgrade from my CD ROM disk. I want to install it over the existing Win95 to the same directories and do not want to disturb existing programs. I have done this several times in Win 3.1 and feel that it is quite possible here, as well.

What I need is an assurance that this is possible and some tips what to do and what to avoid doing. Thank you.

I don't  think you can install the upgrade over the oem version. the upgrade needs dos 6.xx and/or win3.x  which I assume you dont have. also, the install will most likely inform you that an operating system already exists on your drive and it will refuse to load.
