I assume you mean a volume license product key - in which case, see the sample scripts in this Microsoft article:

Use PSEXEC to run it against a list of PCs.

Thanks for your reply but how to use psexec command with this script if I do manually then it would take long time to run this script for more than 100 pc's

Can we bind psexec in script so that it will read pc name from some txt file and change it on pc's

You can use the following code, adjust to your needs.

Place all computer names in a text file (no blank lines, otherwise it will run locally) and adjust the command, you can use %%a wherever you need the computer name.

Kind regards,

Matthias Vance
@ECHO OFF
for /f %%a in (exec.txt) do echo Computer: %%a && <yourcommand>

Did you read the link I posted on PSEXEC?  Because it includes - very near the top - an explanation of usage.  In that explanation, it details one of the command line parameters:
"@file      Directs PsExec to run the command on each computer listed in the text file specified."

You would run PSEXEC, providing it with a text file containing a list of all machines, and the command to run on the remote machine.

You describe your ability as "Advanced on this subject" -  figured it wasn't necessary to explain in such minute detail...
