    Some weird download link found here Upgrade Windows with only a product key - Microsoft Windows Help , it won't work as it says the code I have can't be used for retail versions!

    I only have a Windows 8 professional License will this work for Windows 8.1 Professional or will I have to download that separately?

    They're right, it can't. If you have a volume licencing version, you need to get the ISO from the VL website

    Is there an easy link to that or do I have to sign us for something?

    What licencing agreement do you have?

    If it is a volume licencing agreement your account should already be set up on the MS volume licencing site by the Network Manager (or previous one). If you dont have access too that, call MS and tell them to change the email address its attached too.

    ^ That's the site. If you've not got a login already then you'll need to talk to your volume license reseller about setting up an account.

    odd. Should buy through a reseller, you tend to get better deals than what the council offers (speaking from experience from bedfordshire).

    Bedfordshire charged something like £56 for office and windows combined per full time user which the school just accepted. I got it from Pugh at about half that cost (maybe less).

    We used to do the same, our Council have a deal with Phoenixs. We switched to ordering direct from Phoenix but still using the councils account. Prices were the same regardless, just speeded up the process.

    If your council is running similar then there should be someone there responsible for purchasing the licensing and managing the VLSC account. You need to find out who that is and they should be able to give you download access to the VLSC.

    I have but they refuse to give me access to the VLSC! This may sound bad but can I just download Windows 8 Pro as a ISO via torrent website and use an official licensing key to activate?
