We have lost our serial number for Apple Remote Desktop it's installed on an old Mac but this needs to be rebuilt is there anyway of getting the serial number from the Mac it's installed on? The serial comes up in preferences but the last four digits aren't shown.

Just an idea - check with your Intellectual Property lawyer - in some countries is a proof of license an invoice and not a serial number/license. If it's alright according to your local law rules, you can use any number if you got an invoice.
