Windows Anytime Upgrade

Windows Anytime Upgrade - Why am I not allowed to download the Upgrade, from Windows Home Premium to Windows Professional because I live in New Zealand? Windows users in Australia (which is just across the ditch from us) are able to download the Anytime Upgrade,(along with numerous other Countries around the World), and so I have to ask Microsoft, what have these other Countries & Australia got that New Zealand has not got- which enables them to get preferential treatment over New Zealand Windows users. Microsoft is however not backwards in coming forward and taking money over the internet, for  other Microsoft software they promote to New Zealand Users.

If you are in Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK, and the US you can use Anytime Upgrade. If not you will need to buy the version of Windows 7 you want.

I don't see New Zealand as a listed country in that list. You could try purchasing the Anytime Upgrade key online and use the Anytime Upgrade wizard to upgrade to Windows 7 Professional.
