    Windows XP q(uestion) ?

    ok, here's the thing (for the pc savvy folks) the company that rents space from us and i do their pc's/network/web site.. anyway, they have 5 pc's and 2 Windows CD's (XP Pro) there might be other cd's somewhere in the warehouse (they moved to our building about 18 months ago. still not everything is unpacked)

    i figured i would check the product key with what you can see in System > General.. checked and i don't think those 2 are necessarily the same. is there any other way to verify which cd goes with which Windows ?

    thanks..

    It is located the registry, but it's encrypted. You can find 3rd party utilities that can extract it though.

    (ps. posted a few question threads when you were absent, and did not get many replies *pouts* :}

    ok, thinking about buying this: http://www.product-key.com ..here is what puzzles me a bit, the key needs to be entered during install, so how can this program find the reg code ?

    *mumbles didn't have enough coffee.. why am i cleaning up other peoples crap... grmbl*

    :}

    thanks guys...
