Activation aggro

Just installed the final release of the Creative XTreme music driver that was made available today, all seems to be working fine but 5 mins later Vista popped a message up and said I had made significant hardware changes and needed to reactivate when I tried it told me my product key was already in use. I have just had to phone Microsoft to get it reactivated. So much for Vista allowing more hardware changes than XP. Has anyone else had this problem.
I have a retail copy of Vista Business and not an OEM.

I have just upgraded from onboard audio to a sound card and drivers and had no problems with Vista. Mine is Home Premium oem but I still had to activate it when I first got the PC and before the card was fitted.
