Hi,

I have Winzip 9.0 Sr1 need to find the licence key.I got the licence key from my manager last year and now he is not there in the organization.

When i go to about i cannot see the key and while installing it does not ask the key.

I need to raise a call with winzip and they need the licence key to take a request.Any way to find the key.

Regards
Sharath

It should be located in the registry.


Run regedit and navigate to:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Nico Mak Computing\WinZip]

Check the values and sub keys there.
