Hi, you don't need any trial key. You install it and activate within 30-days to be able using it for 180 days :)

Of course yiu have now 10 days for activation, so you are using it for 20 days

180 days - 20 days = 160 days trial period left :]

No...

both wrong i think....


You NEED to activate it .. online when installing.. If this fails. If will give you a grace period of 60 days to activate.
If this fails, you will not be able to boot in until you have added one.....
