Im troubleshooting a virus infested laptop running W8 with Office 2013 for a client.

I've suggested to client I factory reset the machine but my client cant find her Office 2013 packaging with the key.

Googling I came across several keyfinders (none work on Office 2013)

I also came across this cscript command which only gives me the last few digits.

cscript "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\OSPP.VBS" /dstatus

Any one know how I can view or backup the Office keys so I can factory reset the machine?
Many thanks,
String

Belarc should do the job
http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html
I've just tested it on my PC and it does give the Office 2013 Product Key.
You will also find lots of other useful stuff for when you have reset the PC.
