OEM Number

I lost my OEM number for my windows 95b CD.  Where on the CD can I locate the number,
what file is it located in.  I had to wipe my HD clean so the number is lost completly.

Here's an OEM number .
20195-OEM-0002516-95789
 compare this to every other number on your CD. If worst comes to worst, just use this number.

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.

There exists a scheme with which you can use almost any serial number you want, and it's legal, provided you do own a license. If you reject the answer I will post and tell you how to obtain oem numbers for *any* Microsoft product perfectly legal.
