Tip: Don't use the key on the sticker.
Use a Keyfinder to see the key used in your already installed windows - it's diferent. Please note it on some paper and use it when installing.
After installing, your windows will be already activated.

There are no other updates for MCE after this. You should integrate Rollup2 and after that this one. That's all.
