Edit: Is the lack of replies because no one knows the answer or because this was a ridiculously dumb question?
Also, if I must have a prior version physically installed to do the upgrade, can I install Flex Builder 3 on a temp Windows machine, upgrade that to Flash Builder 4.5.x and then transfer the license to the MacBook? Seems like a very convoluted way of doing things but if that's the only way then I suppose I can go scrounge up a spare computer to do so. End Edit
I just got a brand new MacBook Air which has Lion on it.
I have an unused boxed copy of Flex Builder 3.0 standard edition.
I tried to install 3.0 and of course I got an error along the lines of not compatible.
What I would like to do is upgrade to Flash Builder 4.5.
So the question is,
Can I buy the upgrade edition of Flash Builder 4.5 standard for Mac, then install that on my MacBook even if I don't have 3.0 installed to upgrade from?
Is it as simple of just supplying the seriel number from 3.0 when upgrading?

Well, thought I should update just in case someone else has a similar thought.
I ran out of time to wait and it seemed I wasn't going to get a response so took the chance and bought the upgrade.
The install couldn't find any prior versions so just asked for the serial for Flex Builder 3.0.
After entering that in, it thankfully installed just fine.
Would have totally sucked if it didn't work and was forced to then buy the full version.
Anyhow, relieved it worked.
