            Hi bsharath
               CD keys are not kept in installation CDs and thats why no way/program to export key from CD. If this CD is a retail copy, then CD key should be on a sticker on CD Case. If it is a VLK, then you need Volume License key, which should be retrieved from reseller.

          Also some computer technicians paste this sticker to computer case. Check back, top, sides of the computer case if any stiker is pasted.
