Exchange 2007 Lost Product key

I was going through my software library and I noticed that I have the Exchange 2007 media but not the exchange product key or the case that the media came in. This is not a critical problem at the moment as we have exchange installed and running just fine on a windows server 2003 x64 OS. But I may need the key in the future. My attempts to find the key in the registry failed as I found out that the keys are encrypted. I have also tried a number of apps to get the key out of the registry for me but none of them seem to be able to extract the key for exchange 2007.

Here is a list of programs I have tried so far:
Product key explorer
Exchange Key Finder
Magic Jelly Beans  keyfinder 2.0 beta
Belarc Advisor

It seems some of these apps can do exchange 2003 but none so far can find a exchange 2007 key.
Any Ideas?

Why not call the vendor that you bought the license from?

Hello abraham808,
The provider was Dell and it is their policy to have you contact Microsoft for any licensing issues.
(I have contacted Microsoft and am yet waiting for a response).

First of all thank you for posting to my question. The first two apps you linked are actually the same app and one I have already tried (as you can see from my original post). And the last link to "http://find-lost-windows-product-key.qarchive.org/"  will not load the weboage. I will try that last link again later.

I tried the Passcape Win CD Keysand the recover keys programs from that page and they also could not find the exchange 2007 keys. It seems this is just to new a product for people to have updated their software yet.

Well this question does not need to be deleted now as I have the solution now.

Microsoft did get back to me and since I still have the media all I had to do was read them teh part number from the media and they generated a new product key that would only work on this media.
Easy and Painless. Who would have thought?
