Win7 Home Premium and peer to peer network printing and upgrade to Win7 Pro?
Friend has a small peer to peer network, mostly XP, one Win7 Pro, and one Win7 Home Premium. Win7 Home Premium can't print to the shared printers, it can see the other pc's and shared folders.

The Win7 Pro pc can print to the shared printers.

How does the upgrade process work? Can we simply purchase the license online for the Win7 Pro version and then register it with MS?
