    Hi,

    We have an off-site webserver running Windows 2003 Web Edition that we
    manage through remote desktop. Is it possible to upgrade this to the
    Standard Edition over the remote desktop connection?

    If so, would there be any effect on the configuration of IIS services?

  2. Hi,

    You can't upgrade from Web Edition to Standard - You'll need a clean
    install:
