If you've lost your Windows CD, the product key will be of little use to you.

However, if you want to know it the easiest way would be to download 'Belarc Advisor' and just run it.

In the results page it will show your Product Key and Activation Code. But as I've already mentioned - without your original CD it won't be of much use.

Most likely it will not work with any other Windows CD.

The manufacturer often puts the product key on the side of the machine itself. If not, they might have record of it if you call in and provide them with your serial number, etc.

Other than that, without more description from you, this looks a lot like a "how can I strip a remote machine's product key" question. That sort of question is not looked favorably upon here.

Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
The number is listed under ProductId
or go to

and choose one of their key finding programs

The main reason to recover your windows product key is to have it available to reinstall the operating system.

Giving you the benefit of the doubt, and assuming your request(and your OS) is legitimate, you might want to look at this as well.
