What to do about Product keys when you can’t find that stupid sticker



Ever find yourself reformatting your machine and you get to the awesome list you made of all the applications you need to re-install only to find that you can’t find that stupid Microsoft sticker? No what do you do? Well, you can call Microsoft up and try to get the product key from them, but that can take hours and if you never actually registered your product, good luck with that.

What if there was a way before you re-format your computer to get a list of ALL your product keys free? Well there is and it’s name is ProduKey. ProduKey can be downloaded from here. It is an excellent key recovery tool and couldn’t get any easier to use.


Using the Tool

After Downloading the Zip, unzip the file using your favorite Zip tool. Once that is done, double click the executable and that’s it! You will get a nice display of all your product keys related to Microsoft. You can then save it, copy it or just write them down and keep them in a safe place.



About Gregg Coleman

I am Senior-level Software Engineer working primarily these days with .NET. I have a good working knowledge of ASP.NET MVC, Web Forms, WCF web services and Windows Services. I spend much of my time in the Web Services (SOAP and REST) world in my current job designing and implementing various SOA architectures. I have been in the software engineering industry for about 6 years now and will not now nor ever consider myself an "expert" in programming because there is always so much to learn. My favorite thing about designing software is there are always new emerging technologies and something to learn every day! My current job has me spending much of my job on the bleeding edge of technologies and changing gears all the time, so I'm never bored and always challenged. On my spare time I enjoy weight training, reading and venturing to new places near by. Of course programing and learning new technologies are another hobby of mine.
