View Full Version : Microsoft Product Keys

22nd August 2003, 15:30
I hope someone can help...

I'm a MS Action Pack subscriber, so have 10 licences for the key desktop software (e.g. office, etc).

However, we've got in a bit of a muddle as to what product key we've used to install the software on what PC.

Is there any way I can check what product key has been used on an installed product? Otherwise, I guess I'm going to have to re-install all the software again...

Cheers in advance,

Open the app, then go to Help|About Microsoft Whatever

Thanks, but that's not the product key... I need the one you enter when you install the software (different to the one that appears in the help | about screen...

However - have found a little utility that does the job here (http://download.com.com/3000-2094-10151785.html?tag=lst-0-1)... Bloody handy bit of kit.

Cheers anyway,
