One of my customer has sent me the following email last week. This might help you out.

Quote:
Some folks seem to lose their XP and Office Product Keys [forget to stick the label onto the System Case or other reason].

If you need to identify your installation IDs and keep them some place safe, download this small application and run it on your PC. It's safe on XP and Office XP

http://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder.shtml
Personally, I have not tried it, but the person that emailed me has and he says that it work.

I hope this helps.

No, there is no way to find the MS product key from within the registry just by browsing. Perhaps the link will work, I've never tried it.

He was looking for a book for XP in the second or third post of his. So, I am assuming XP
