In What Can I Do About The End of XP Support you say to run Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant. You can’t run Upgrade Assistant if you are running Vista or XP. You can only run it if you are running Windows 7.

Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant should work with XP.  Make sure you are running Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant [1] and not Windows 8.1 Upgrade Assistant. They are featured on the same download page from Microsoft.

The 8.1 Upgrade Assistant [2] will not run with XP. However, 8.1 and have very similar requirements, so if your computer will work with 8, it will probably work with 8.1.
