Default Retrieving a serial number?

I have a photo editing program installed on one of my computers here at work. Its installed on a Windows XP machine. I installed this program about 6 months ago.

Now, I need to install this program on my new laptop so I can do some work from home. Only problem is I lost the serial numbers and the company is located in Australia, so theres no way I would get them until Monday (its 2am in australia right now). The serial number is not listed in the "Help->About" menu.

Is there any way I can retrieve the registration numbers by looking in the registry? I know this is possible, but I need to know where to look. Thanks!

Google "Belarc Advisor"

It is a great free utility that shows you licenses (and much more) for software installed on your PC.
