    If you registered the product, then you should be able to call MS to get the correct number.

    If you've previously installed it, there are some people who (I think) know how to get the information out of the registry.

    Let us know the status.

    If you have yet to uninstall and Office is still on your system, download and run Aida 32 personal Edition

    Click Software | Licences in the left pane
    In the Right pane, you should see Office and the 25 alphanumeric cd-key

    I think Aida32 only gives the Product I.D# for OFFICE.... but not the product key code. It does give the key code for WINDOWS.

    I know my 25 CD Key code for Office2000 and have not been able to find it in the registry or elsewhere.

    If you are finding it - let me know. Perhaps there is a newer version of AIDA than mine that is able to or I am going the wrong way.

    Putasolution,

    I am surely missing my mind at this time.

    You were right - my version was 3.75 of the Enterprise variety. But... the downloaded 3.8PE is changed and has no Licenses under software. I've looked about to no avail.

    Before I download the 3.75PE version - could you see what version you have that apparently works in this regard.


    much thanks,

    - Castleheart

    I BOUGHT WORD 2K AND REINSTALLED SO I AM UP AND RUNNING AGAIN BUT I AM WONDERING WHY ALL THE PROGRAMS EVERYONE HAS SUGGESTED TO READ SYSTEM FILES SHOWS A 20 DIGIT NUMBER FOR WORD 2K AND IT IS NO WHERE NEAR THE PRODUCT NUMBER?

    I believe it is because of what I said in reply #5 above - it is giving the Product I.D# and not the C.D. KEY CODE.

    - C


    It's a Bill Gate's thang!

    IS THERE ANY PROGRAM THAT GIVES THE CD KEY AND IS WORD 2K THE ONLY PROGRAM THAT REPORTS THIS WAY?
