I installed Windows 2003 with temp license license of my own until a valid license key came from Microsoft, and "think" I now have a valid license in place.
Where can I go look in Windows 2003 and make sure my valid license is installed instead of my own license?

Use the following utility..


Current version is 1.41


The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is a freeware utility that retrieves your Product Key (cd key) used to install windows from your registry. It has the options to copy the key to clipboard, save it to a text file, or print it for safekeeping. It works on Windows 95, 98, ME, NT4, 2000, XP, Server 2003, Office 97, and Office XP. This version is a quick update to make it work with Windows Server 2003.

Ok. I used it. It works great to show me the serial number.
Now I need to change the serial number.
How and where do  I make that change?
The option in the Jelly Bean keyfinder to change the key is greyed out.
