Adobe Serial Number

Anyone know how to recover the serial number from Adobe Pro and Standard from the installed application? Trying to cross-reference serial numbers installed with the website what's downloaded on which computer.

I haven't tried this myself, but I've been on other threads here at EE where Experts have recommended SIW (System Information for Windows):

They claim to be able to recover Acrobat/Photoshop/CS keys: http://recover-keys.com/

It's the commercial version of MJB Keyfinder.

The excellent (free!) Belarc Advisor shows it:
http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

I ran it last week. It has a Software Licenses section. Here's what its output looks like for Acrobat:

Adobe Systems - Adobe Acrobat X Standard - English, Français, Deutsch 1234-5678-1234-5678-1234-5678

Sadly, the free version of Belarc Advisor is not allowed for commercial purposes:

Q: Can I purchase a license to run the Belarc Advisor on my corporate network, or my customer's network?

A: We do not permit use of the Belarc Advisor for commercial purposes, however we suggest that you take a look at our products, which we do license for commercial use.

☠ MASQ ☠Commented:
Which version(s) are you trying to identify?

If they are X or better don't waste your money the Keys cannot be recovered from the registry (they are not there) the activation processsimply passes the key used through and doesn't store anything other than the fact a valid key was used.

http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Windows/XP/Q_28361249.html

From an auditing perspective activated copies of X or XI should match what you have on your online account but you won't be able to identify which machine was activated with which key.

Yep, sad, but true. Their BelManage product is for commercial purposes:

Registry hacks, WMI scripts, etc...?
