Upgrading from Visual Studio 2010 Professional to Ultimate

Upgrading from Visual Studio 2010 Professional to Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate

Recently I needed to run the performance profiler on some code but I was running Visual Studio 2010 Professional on my laptop and only Visual Studio 2012 Premium and Ultimate have that feature.

So, I decided to upgrade.

One option I have is to uninstall Professional and install Ultimate but that would remove all my settings, solutions and projects etc.

The best solution I found was, download the Web Installer from MSDN (.exe) and direct run it.

When you run it direct, it will actually upgrade Visual Studio 2012 Professional to Ultimate.

Here is the good part. All my settings and solutions are also migrated.
