Question Finding the Product Key?

I have an old CD of MS Small business. Actually--2 CDs

I've lost the product key code when I moved--and I can't install the SM software now.

Never needed it on my new machine--untill my wife started a home business. Now I can't install it.

Is there a way to get the product key right from the CD?

I hate calling MS.

Thanks in advance.

To my knowladge MS never puts product keys in their CDs by default. Though I have ran into VB Studio which did not have the CD key on it but automatically entered it for you.
