win 98 CD key number

Is there any way to find the cd key number on a computer? I lost the case and number, but have my win 98 cd, and would like to reload the system.

Not really,
The number gets translated into the numerical number.

If you call MS Free tech support, they should be able to give you the key if you explain the situation.

I think that you can find it in your system registry, I don't remember exactly where though, and sadly I am in front of an NT machine, so I cannot check.

But I know for sure that either the MS Office cd-rom key or the Windows OS cd-rom key is stored in the registry.

goto: Start>Run>REGEDIT
and then search for key, it should come up with it.

good luck.

If windows is already installed onto your system and running you can enter the Registry and obtain that information. See info below:

REGEDIT > HKey - LocalMachine > Software > Microsoft > Windows > Current Version

Look under "Product Key" at the right.

Joe is right, it does store it there.

I was mistaken about it translating it on the fly.

Is there a way to check it if the regedit function is disabled by the administrator?...

If you have an administrator that takes care of your computers then he should be able to get the key for u.
