You shouldn't need a previous version, you must be using thew upgrade option. Look for a clean installation, and if you can't perform one because its greyed out or not there, you must have changed setupp.ini so that setup thinks its an OEM version (upgrade only).

Should definitely work if you edit it. I've tried it. If you change the PID line to "pid=51882 335" you'll have a working retail CD
