I can't imagine that it does work. If the key used is for the Enterprise edition then that is what it will legally authenticate. If such a program did actually work it definitely wouldn't work on a VL product.

Theres an issue with the key... So the best thing to do is try 7 disk upgrade option and new key? Or complete redo?

I bet changing your licence to a higher value one you don't own is iliegal. The only case you can downgrade is going to an older OS, you are better off contacting Microsoft about the process.

It might be violating their licence agreement.

As I recall the downgrading option is to go from W7 Home Premium to Vista Home Premium or from W7 Ultimate to Vista Ultimate.

Better call Microsoft and check because any wrong steps makes your OS illegal.

NO need to use any program just do an in place upgrade of Windows 7 a.k.a. a repair installation:

http://www.mydigitallife.info/hack-to-in-place-downgrade-from-windows-7-ultimate-or-professional-to-less-premium-editions/

You got to do some Registry Hacking though on the currently installed Windows 7. eek.gif

EDIT:

Or you could always start from scratch and do a clean install instead. You can literally just insert the disk while still on W7 Enterprise start the installation and then use the "Custom (Advanced)" option instead of "Upgrade" as suggested in the above link I provided.
