Windows and Office Keyfinder

I am looking for a Windows and Office Keyfinder.  I have already found the Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder (http://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder.shtml).  It's a great tool, but it doesn't work with Office 2000.

We have all versions of Windows from 95 to XP and Office from 97 to XP.  I want our users to be able to run the keyfinder program and have the option to email the key.  This would take the headache out of personally going to each machine (about 100) and running the program myself.

Thanks.

Hi,

Simple answer is you can't!  For some reason the office key for 2000 is encrypted.  (Its not encrypted for XP due to product activation).

You can ask microsoft.  Heres the link:

Try a program called Belarc Advisor.  It tells you everything about your PC including all Software keys, including MS.

Anyone else....

Everest Home will not work since we are in a domain environment.... The trial version of Everest Pro doesn't give Product Keys....

Belarc seems to be working, but is there something else out there?
