    Hi,

    Is it possible (and if so is it a simple process) to upgrade from Windows
    2003 Web Edition to Windows 2003 Standard Edition (or even Enterprise?)? We
    seem to have reached the memory limits of web edition and would like to add
    more RAM but it looks like we'll have to upgrade the OS as well :(

    Thanks. Carl.

  3. No you have to wipe and reload the server. There is no upgrade from web
    edition to other versions of Windows 2003.
