Depends which version of Exchange. If it is volume edition then no key is required. You only need a key for retail box. If you have access the volume download site then you can download a new copy from there.

Thanks For the Comment Simon.

it is definatly a retail box version.
it included 25 CALS and we purchased extras on top of that.
i have the CALS but can not find the retail box and that has the original CD-KEY on the packaging
