      Finding Your MS Product Codes

      Warning: This tip accesses the registry and MUST be used with extreme care!

      Ever notice how Microsoft likes to put "product keys" on all their software? Well, what do you do if you've lost yours and you need re-install the software? I suppose you could call Microsoft and ask them for help. Yeah right!

      Here's another solution: If the program is still on your machine (or at least still has entries in your registry), there may be hope. The info you need may be tucked away in the Windows Registry ! This doesn't always work, but it's worth a shot:

      1. Click the Start button, Run . Type in regedit and click OK . Your registry editor program will start.



      2. Next, head to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\Microsoft . Make sure you open (double-click) the Microsoft folder.

      3. Now, scroll down to the program you want to re-install. Double-click its folder and look for another folder called " Current Version ."


      4. Double-click that and look for an entry for " ProductKey " or " ProductId " in the right windowpane. If you find it, you've found your code!


      It can be a bit of a pain to hunt through the registry like this, but at least you don't have to buy the software again!

      Greetings Ifasehun!

      Yes indeed, most people find out the hard way, just how big a problem it can be. Keeping up with those product codes can be tedious to say the least. The average user has a problem but especially if you are in the field you know how aggravating it is when you think you have it but you don't, so you can imagine what some of my days have been like.

      One thing though I now keep a list in several places including online, so I always have a way to retrive them if ever I get totally stuck.

      Another thing I advise people to do is to get a permanent marker and write the key codes directly on the Cd, so if the book or license is missing and they still have the CD then they have the code without having to go and look for it.

      Thanks for your input.

      Peace!
