Can't run Windows Anytime Upgrade on Windows 7 Home Premium to Pro

I attempted to run Windows Anytime Upgrade on an Acer desktop.  I'm in Canada, and the computer is set to Canada, proper time zone, etc.

When I try to run Windows Anytime Upgrade to get from Home Prem. to Pro, I get:

"We're sorry, Windows Anytime Upgrade isn't currently available for online purchase in your country or region..."

I've done this a dozen times before.  Any idea why it's happening now?

Wait and try again. Or call Microsoft.

From what I gather, m$ has suspended this service for Windows 7.

That's not great news, as I assume it means I must do a Windows reinstall with a Pro DVD? A couple of hours versus 10 minutes?

You might still be able to get "Windows Anytime Upgrade Packs" from physical stores or online, maybe ebay or similar. That way the process would be similar to the original way.

Microsoft Sales has confirmed via phone conversation that this is the case.
