Where do I add the license key in ColdFusion 9

I worked with a representative on live chat at Adobe.  We had installed ColdFusion 9.  Our developer worked on the system in developer mode.  The license was purchased.  I was told that there were 3 options to installing the license key.

Wait for the trial to expire and then it would ask me to install the key
Set the system clock back so the license would expire
Uninstall and Reinstall the product.  I was told that I might lose some settings.

This seems bizarre.  Why can't I just add the key now?  Other software I have purchased allows entering a key at any time.  Is there some reason Coldfusion doesn't do this?  I couldn't find any answer in their forum.  I thought I would check with you folks to see if this is correct.
