Client bought two new PC's not going through us and got them with Windows Home Premium instead of Pro. They are on a domain, so need to upgrade them to Pro.
Attempting to use the Windows Anytime Upgrade I get this messageMessage. Language is correct and the keyboard setting are correct.
Thoughts??

From what I gather, m$ has terminated the anytime upgrade service for Windows 7 (seemingly already since several months). You'll have to upgrade either by buying and installing the new OS separately, or check if you can get hold of the "Anytime Upgrade Pack", which may still be available in some conventional shops, or maybe also via services like ebay.
