Short description
Changes a Windows image to a higher edition.

Set-WindowsEdition [-LogLevel <LogLevel>] [-LogPath <String>] [-ScratchDirectory <String>] [-SystemDrive <String>] [-Wi
ndowsDirectory <String>] -Edition <String> -Path <String> [<CommonParameters>]

The Set-WindowsEdition cmdlet changes a Windows image to a higher edition. Use Get-WindowsEdition with the Target param
eter to find which editions are available in an image.

You should not use the Set-WindowsEdition on an image that has already been changed to a higher edition. It is recommen
ded that you use this option on the lowest edition available in the edition family.

You can only change the edition on a running operating system for Windows Server images, not online Windows client imag
es. The ProductKey parameter is required for changing online Server images.
