How to translate barcode on OEM Windows license sticker to product key

I am looking at writing a program to scan one of the bar codes on the oem license sticker and translate it into the product key.  Does anyone know if this is possible?  If so, can I also use if for MS Office?

If it ever was installed, look under Registry

My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\BSHELF95

key PID

number is of form

#####-###-#######-#####

if that's not it, let me know

It should be somewhere in the Registry.
