    Can you currently get into your install of Windows 98? Post back. If you can, then we can retrieve your key. If not, then you'll probably need to contact Microsoft and plead your case.

    Sorry, but short of purchasing another copy or begging Microsoft to give you one, I'm thinking you're out of luck.

    The thing is, we can't just give you one of ours because that would be illegal and is not allowed in these forums.

    Maybe someone else knows of another way to recover it but I certainly can't if you don't even have it installed yet.

    Well, I meant that you hadn't completed an install including entering the key. If you had previously entered the key, there may be a way to retrieve it.
