go to start, run, type "regedit" (without quotes) then go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\ CurrentVersion\ make sure "currentversion" is selected then click on "productID"

or if you're looking for your CD key (assuming you've got XP) go to: http://www.svrops.com/svrops/downloa.../viewkeyXP.zip - don't tell us your key
btw, this viewer is legal

I cannot get that program to run on 1 computer that I tried it on. It said something about causing a fault, I think that is what it said, and needs to shut down. It works on my computer at home.
