    I would like to know if it is possible to upgrade winxp pro to Win server
    2003. The reason I want to do that is that the Winxp machine has a problem
    where you can only have 10 concurent connections and the people that use the
    machine are in need of more. I can not format and do a fresh install of Win
    server 2003 seeing that there are software on there that are very costley to
    get the right people out to come and do the installations over. The machine
    is used by a accounting department and was used bt them as a server and Win
    xp is not server like at all.

    Can someone please give me advise.

    Thanx

    There is no supported upgrade path from any version of workstation to any
    version of server.
