Depending on where and when you downloaded, you may not have gotten a key
and should not expect to.
Did you input your Email address somewhere?
If not, that is your answer.
The recent release of Pre RC-1 last week cam via a link with no option for
getting a key.
If you have a key from Beta 2, that will work.
Otherwise you can install without a key but you will be unable to use
Windows Vista after 14 days.
