Hi,

I have some Microsoft Office 2010 installations that have been activated some time ago on Windows 7 machines, and now I need to find out which 25 character product key was entered for each installation. How can I find this key?

Thanks,
Ronnie

Run SIW on those PC's. Under Licenses you'll find the keys of each product that needed such a key:

Thanks but is there a free tool for this, and does Microsoft not support this functionality with the software?

There is a free version of SIW (it's the older version on their download site). Also Portableapps has a free version of SIW:

With portableapps you could include several useful tools on a USB stick and then run them directly from the stick without needing further installation, it's an essential tool.

You can download a free small utility "produKey" from here:

http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/ProduKey-Download-21769.html

Just choose 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64), depending on your operating system.

This is written in autoit
the _x86 should work on both 64 and 32 bit systems, but if not the x64 is attached as well. Key-retreiver-x86.txt key-retreiver-x64.txt

here is the actual code/author of the script, and obviously you will need to rename the .txt to .exe

While there is a free version of SIW it is not licensed for use on a business network.  Now, given what it does, the fact that it's a single executable, it's size, and it's cost (for a technician license), I STRONGLY RECOMMEND you BUY the technician license and use that.  I did.

Otherwise, the Magical Jelly Bean MAY be free for commercial use - I'm really not sure.

Try ProduKey

http://pcsupport.about.com/gi/o.htm?zi=1/XJ&zTi=1&sdn=pcsupport&cdn=compute&tm=6&f=11&su=p284.12.336.ip_p504.1.336.ip_&tt=4&bt=0&bts=1&zu=http%3A//www.nirsoft.net/utils/product_cd_key_viewer.html

FYI... Magical Jelly Bean no longer can be used to find Office Product keys. They now have a paid software for that.

FYI, Produkey is free for business use since we are talking about licensing.....

You can also have it scan the entire domain, or use a .TXT file with the 25 PCNames in it......
