    My new Dell Vostro laptop had Vista home basic installed and activated. I
    purchased the upgrade for Vista Home Premium. I received the upgrade DVD
    after about a month of non-receipt of the DVD after the order was placed.
    The link provided for the upgrade which I guess was for the product license
    key expired and I couldn't use my verizon.net email address to create an
    account to access the digital locker so I proceeded to install the upgrade
    from the DVD while waiting to get instructions on how to access the digital

    The upgrade appears to have completed normally after about 90 minutes of
    installation time with no error messages but I only now downloaded the
    license file from the digital locker.

    Vista asked me to activate the software, which I did with no error messages.

    I was subsequently told that my operating system would probably stop working
    in a month. If I change the software product key to the product key number
    provided in the license file, should the software work normally?

    Or will I need to do something else?
