Hi!

I have a hard-disc connected to my computer, using a usb connection device i have. What i need to do, is to find the office license key stored on this hard drive. Its originally the windows disc, and belongs to another computer.

I dont know how to access the registry, where to look after the outlook license key - or anything like that.

i also want to add that the windows\system32\config, is empty for files - even tho chkdsk gives me a warning about errors in that folder.

So what options do i have ?
