Hi Siva,

As long as you haven’t removed Windows 98 or formatted your hard drive, the product key is in the Windows 98 registry.

1. Click Start, Run and type in REGEDIT and click OK.

2. Drill down to this registry key in the left window:

3. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

4. Now click once on the word “CurrentVersion” in the left window.

5. In the right window, to the right of “ProductID, you’ll see your product ID and to the right of ProductKEY is the key code from the CD case.

Type regedit, go to Hkey_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

There you find the ProductID, this value is the key that you must enter during the install process.

Mario, no one has said "don't answer". What this site appreciates is that if your proposed answer is just a thought, ot an opion or a "maybe this will work", then don't block the question.
