Only the Software Manufacture or Supplier

by TheChas In reply to missing the product key

You have 2 options:

If the system the CD belongs to is still running, you can use utilities like Magic Jelly Bean Key Finder to retrieve the product keys from the system files.

If the system is not running, you need to contact either the software manufacture or the company that you purchased the system from and request a new product key.

You will need solid proof of ownership of the software.

Additional information

If the software is Microsoft, there is a registration number on the CD itself near the inner ring. Call Microsoft. They will ask for that number and validate the CD. Then they can give you a new key.

Good luck!
