    Does anyone know where the product key is located in the registry? I have the cd but don't have the key and I am needing to reload on my machine that did have the working program on it. I figure finding the key in the registry would be easier than finding the cd case. Thanks

    there are 2 programs that will find your installed office keys

    Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder v1.31 from http://www.magicaljellybean.com

    or aida from http://www.aida32.hu/aida32.php

    both find keys in all versions of windows, including 200 & XP which encrypt the keys inthe registry so a munual search will not find them

    Thanks for the info, magicjellybean did not work on office 2000 and I couldn't get the aida link up. I will try again later.

    Again thanks, if anyone else has any info I would appreciate it.

    I've just seen on the jellybean site that it works with windows 2000, but not with office 2000. they say that no-one seems to be able to find the encryption code that M$ have used for office 2000 key codes. It does work with office Xp though
