"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The OEM number is NOT on the CD.  It's too bad you wiped out your HD as it is stored on the hard disk in the registry.  If you have other MS products, try some of the OEM codes from them.  Some will work.

A little trick I've learned is to use all 1's.
It works for most ms programs.

There is a list of about 15 oem numbers for WIN95b. I will share them with you if you reject the answer and give me the points.

Here's an OEM number .

 compare this to every other number on your CD. If worst comes to worst, just use this number.
