    I have lost the cd key for my office 2000 software, the program is up and running on my pc but I want to recover the CD key in the event that I have to re-install the software someday when I replace this pc.
    Is there a way to discover what the cd key is? I searched the registry and found where the registration number is, but that isn't the cd key.
    Thanks in advance.

    Oh dear.

    There are many programs that will extract the key from the installed applications, but as far as I know, none will work with Office 2000 as the key is encrypted.

    However, a phone call to Microsoft with the numbers you do have could be worth it.
