registry

by BobHo In reply to registry

The cd-key is no longer stored in the registry (as it was in win9. If you don't have it and need to re-install you will need to contact Microsoft if it is a retail version or the vendor you purchased it from if it is an OEM version. Same with Office.

Sometimes OEM's put the cd-key sticker on the side or back of the pc, you might look there.

There have also been reports that it is in the following file:

C:\WINNT\system32\$winnt$.inf

Sometimes it's in there and sometimes it's not. No rhyme or reason as to when it shows up.

Sorry.
