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
try using this program to extract the key
The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is a freeware utility that retrieves your Product Key (cd key) used to install windows from your registry

Thanks for the info,

i have already tried to use Magiclal JellyBean to extract the Code. it does not list in the program
if magical jely bean doesnt' work try this

I've used ProduKey in the past but not for quite some time.
