CMD Script to recover MS Office Product Keys across XP, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.

Good day.

Could someone perhaps help me with a cmd script to recover Microsoft Office Product Keys across different Windows Versions and Architectures?

I would like to add it to my script I'm currently working on that pulls general system information in regards to a clients PC. As a side note and to clear any confusion, this is in no way intended to be malicious in nature, and would serve as a very useful batch utility to have when working on clients machines in the event of a complete format. I am aware that there are several 3rd party tools available to do the job as well.

Use http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/product_cd_key_viewer.html - at least for Office up to Office 2010, it work. I haven't tried newer ones.

It supports command line usage (batch).

So far as I know, Office 2013, 2016 Click to Run subscriptions do not have product keys you can obtain this way.

I use Recover Keys and I have used Nirsoft and the Office keys only go to Office 2010.

The world is rapidly changing.

The Five Tenets of the Most Secure Backup

Data loss can hit a business in any number of ways. In reality, companies should expect to lose data at some point. The challenge is having a plan to recover from such an event.

I usually use third party software, but in this case I would like it all to be part of the batch file without any additional software installed. There are version specific methods, but it's only the keys for office 2016 and older that are relevant. 365 accounts aren't a worry

See if you can find the key for the Office 2016. Some versions have no keys that you can get (or are of any value without a Microsoft Account)

"but in this case I would like it all to be part of the batch file without any additional software installed." - I have not seen buil-in commands that would reveal the whole product key. nirsoft's tool is as close as you can get. No installation needed.
Steps:
1 place the downloaded tool on a network share
2 read about the command line parameters (right on the download page= my link)
3 create a share (\\server\officekeys) writable for everyone, readable only for admins
4 use a startscript that writes the key to \\server\officekeys\%computername%.txt

Easy peasy 5 mins of work.
