Commerical/OEM Issues with SQL Anywhere 12 Install

Question about my SQL Anywhere 12 install here.
I've downloaded my SA12 install files from subscribe-net.  I've gone ahead 
and installed it on my development server so I can start using SQL Anywhere 
12.  When it asked for the key, I used the Commercial (non-authenticated) 
key that was found in my OEM documentation.  (Same exact thing I did with 
SQL Anywhere 11).
When I run a database under SQL Anywhere 11 on this machine, and I show the 
server window from the tray, it says "Workgroup Edition".  However, when I 
show the server window for SQL Anywhere 12, it says "OEM Edition".
It this correct???
I've used the commercial key, because I'm not wanting to deal with 
authentication under development.  That gets kicked in under production. 
Haven't even generated an OEM key yet from subscribe-net.
Can somebody let me know if this is what I should be seeing?  The only thing 
that I did after the original install was run the latest upgrade against the 
install to bring it up to the latest version.  I wasn't sure if I should 
still be seeing "Workgroup Edition" on the server window.
TIA for the info.

Hi Jeff!
We do the exact same thing.
We install the WorkGroup Edition on development machine and main server, 
since we run mix and match of our OEM product as well as one non OEM 
product.
For our final build machine testing (and production clients) we use the OEM 
version.
When I do dblic dbeng12.exe on my development machine, I clearly see 
"WorkGroup Edition".  I am running WIN7  and nothing shows in the tray.
Have you just used DBLIC to see exactly what your SRV/ENG is?

Also - subscribe.net - you have access to download/create BOTH keys.
