RE: Anytime Upgrade from Scratch?
To be clear, I'm asking if I get a new license key that effectively replaces
my old one, and unlocks the full Ultimate version on the disc so i can
install straight from a format or XP to Ultimate (since all discs are the
same), or if i will forever have to install business first then download the
software that allows the update?
