since there should be no difference in the version numbers (or OS's)

you are just fine changing your key....

(activating using the key MS provides you....)

before you do that do a sfc /scannow...

(it should put the original pkeyconfig.xrm-ms and tokens.dat)

you have to redo the watermark remover if you have it enabled though...

then activate using that key (the email one)...
