PostPost subject: No icon Windows Product Key Finder
Reply with quote

About every 6 months or so I re-image my computer to keep it running good after all of windows annoying updates, so I always have to retrieve my product code for windows. I've found a few free tools but they all seem to work for one or two times then it comes up saying you have to pay. I wrote a quick application that does it for you, so if anyone wants it I have included it! And the price??? Free! Forever! How about that? It's very simple to use!

I included a link to download it

As part of my profession (IT), I've always used Belarc Advisor (free). This piece of software shows a full breakdown of a computer's hardware system including ALL software keys.
Another I've used is Magic Jelly Bean Keyfinder (also free) sadly it does not do as much as Belarc and even some office versions are not supported.

Yeah I am working on adding more keys to this as well. Belarc sadly is starting to suck and Office is changing how keys are stored. Office 2013 and later are not stored on the machine in the registry as they used to be. Magic Jelly Bean has a problem though with machines that have the product key stored on bios and will report the wrong one.

Yeah, I've noticed it on Win 10 machines myself. We still utilize a bunch of Win 7 machines so it hasn't been an issue with those. I think it's a combination of Win 10 and how M$ is connecting office 365 to Office 2013/2016 through it's online services.

Yeah, Microsoft changed to embedding the product key to an online check system so its no longer reported in the registry. The previous registry is blank with the latest versions of office.
