    Not disputing that, Just saying that you can activate with your upgrade key. Installing WMC is completely optional and independent of activating your upgrade key (39.99 or 14.99 keys). I was afraid that the upgrade key was going to be useless for doing an upgrade install, it appears that is not the case.

    Would like to return that recommendation :D. Was only stating an obvious fact - no offense involved.
