    VAMT can't tell them apart.

    Any help is appreciated.

    If you only have a 2015 key and want to install 2016, you can safely upgrade from 2015 to 2016 without any issue ;)

    I write all my keys on slips of paper. I put them in a hat, stand at the top of the stairs and dump them all out. The one that goes farthest is the x86 key!

    Got it, the Edition/Crypto ID generated from the PID Checker separated the two.
