tsctst.exe replacement on Windows 7?

    Frage

  • Is tsctst.exe still valid on Windows 7? I try to run it to show CAL but get "Can't open key - 2" error. If not, what's the new tool to do the same thing?

    Also, is KB support.microsoft.com/kb/187614 still applicable to Windows 7? I removed MSLicensing key but seemed had no effect.

  • Hi

    You can read the registry key into a certificate file (*.p7b) and then read the certificates by just double klick the file. In the certificate you will see all Information you Need: valid from, valid to, issuer ....
    Powershell:

    $a = gp "hklm:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSLicensing\Store\LICENSE000" "ClientLicense"
    $a."ClientLicense" | set-content c:\temp\Mylicense.p7b -enc byte

  • Did you ever get a solution? I'm considering writing a tool to decode this key.

  • No. And I wonder if that registry is still used by new version OS. It looks like it's not longer applicable.

  • No, the registry key is the same, the issue is that on windows 64, the tool calls a 32bit API and so Syswow64 redirection kicks in and masks the key. One possible solution would be to copy the key under Wow6432Node and it would work.
