    Hi All,

    Is there a way of finding the cd key that was entered on the operating system when installed?

    Thanks

    The reason that program didn't work was that you asked for a way to find the CD Key for the OS. Office is not an OS.

    Now, I'm suspicious.

    If you really have two copies of Office, I advise you to get your help from Microsoft. They are in the best position to help you. If these are OEM copies, call your PC manufacturer.

    Odd. I could have sworn it works with office as well (office xp and 97).

    I'll have to check it when I get home.

    Aida32ee (Enterprise Edition) is a *free* program that will show you the keys used when installing msOffice. You don't need to install it, it will run from it's own folder. To find the Office key go to -> Software -> Licenses. Although development was ended on this excellent program recently, it is still available for download HERE .
