Windows 8.1 Pro Upgrade Question

At last year's meetup, during the giveaways, I received a Windows 8.1 Pro download code. I've not used it. With Windows 10 fast upon us, I thought I'd upgrade my Acer R7 that has Windows 8.1 Home. I broke the seal on the 8.1 Pro code and tried to install, but the system said that I could not use that code for the upgrade. 

 

Does anyone know a way to make the machine take the code? Or is it just a bust?

If it is a redemption code you may have to redeem it to get a product key. Then you can use the product key to "upgrade" your 8.1 home to 8.1 pro.

No. It has a URL to download Windows 8.1 and then the code is the product key to enter when asked for it.
