  • The free version of Belarc Advisor will list product keys.

    (The Windows license key is in the Windows registry, but it's encrypted.)

    If you reinstall using the manufacturer's Recovery System, you will not need to enter the Key - it comes with its own Key built-in.

  • Hi,

    You can use the command to show the detailed information.

    Click Start, input cmd in the search box, then press ENTER.

    Input the command: slmgr /dli all

    Wait for seconds, then you'll get a License information list.

    Regards,

    Miya

    Thanks for the command - but the response window is way taller than the screen, and cannot be scrolled - attempting to pipe the output to a txt file doesn't work, and it's impossible to Move the window so that the lower regions can be read.

    This means that in some cases at least the result id frustration rather than illumination.

    Is there a way around this?

  • Hi Noel Paton,

    Very thanks for notifying me that and sorry for my mistake.

    Using the command slmgr /? will give you the activation information. However, it won't tell you the key. It's for security.

    Maybe the third-party tool that bobkn mentioned could list the key, I didn't test that on my own computer.

    Regards,

    Miya

  • As an alternative to Belarc Advisor you can also use a tool called Magic Jelly Bean Keyinder. This will allow the PID (Product ID)Product Key to be displayed from within Windows 7.

  • The PID is already visble - on the System properties page.

  • There are no built-in tools in Windows that allow you to do that. even the C:\>slmgr /dlv command only displays you the partial product key.

    This link should help, it has many free utilities to help you extract the product key. And not just for Windows but also Office and other software:

  • there's a little free app,

    free for real, since in the past i had to deal with apps that where "free" just to discover that they where on a "fremium" distribution model, or free with toolbars etc,

    actually this app, called Find My Windows Key is free for real, of course i tested it with AV and is clean, does not install anything else than itself and have been monitoring the firewall just to check any weird behaviour but i must admit is clean and free. it's true that the key should be encrypted but as far as i know it's a storage purpose encription rather than a product key security feature since MS itself released a tool time ago that allows to see your own key tool that of course somewhere in the big cave of big M got lost.

    in any case give it a try since it's handy and honestly developed.

  • I would be VERY careful about using that tool - buried in the verbiage in the site id the following notice.....

    <quote>

    FindMyWindowsKey website uses advertising services to serve ads to the website visitor. Google and/or its associates may use some generic information in order to provide a better targeted advertisement.

    </quote>

    ....quite apart from the fact that the tool errors out on my system anyhow!

  • you were too careful too look for a trouble to avoid to understand that it means they use google adsense on their website, not in the app,

    they also wrote "no ads in the app" how come you did not read that.

    in any case when i stated that an app is clean it means is clean. and Find my Windows Key is 100% clean.

  • You can state what you like  - the tool does not work on any of my systems

  • Find My windows Key worked fine in my computer shop on:

    - 3 Win7 64 bits

    - 1 Win xp 32 bit

    - 1 Win xp 64 bits

    - 1 old Vista computers whose customer got the CoA unreadable, 64 bits as well

    plus is portable...

    I do not know what problems you have but contact them for support instead of inventing stories? since you look like such a fairy tale teller, buddy...
