    Try the upgrade first before purchasing a new license. Last time I looked they were still doing it for free, even though that promotion ended some years ago. The upgrade checker tool should let you know if any drivers need to be upgraded, but typically the only one that blocks is some of the older WiFi drivers. In those cases you just disable the card before the upgrade and re-enable after.
