    Here are the steps.
    1. You need to launch setup.exe from the iso (after extracting it)
    2. On Installation center, choose Edition Upgarde as shown below. Then.. next, next ... finish.

  • Hello,

    Yes, basically you need to upgrade the existing installation, and setup will ask you for the new product key.

    Hope this helps.
