    Default Windows 7 Product Key

    Is there any software that will recover our Windows 7 product Key?

    Magical Jelly Bean doesn't work Win 7 or Windows 2008 server.. all its shows is BBBBB-BBBBB-BBBBB-BBBBB-BBBBB for both the machines. Maybe MS has done some sort of protection? Works fine for the XP machines.

    As it happens I'm using Win7 64 bit and magic jellybean worked for me.

    From the link above:-

    "
    Standard Hooplah
    The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is a freeware open source utility that retrieves your Product Key (cd key) used to install Windows from your registry. It allows you to print or save your keys for safekeeping. It works on Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista, 7, Server 2003, Server 2008, Office XP, Office 2003, and Office 2007 family of products. It also has a community-updated configuration file that retrieves product keys for many other applications. Another feature is the ability to retrieve product keys from unbootable Windows installations."

    You may need to right click and run as administrator for it to work in win7.

    Since when - Never had any problems with it ???? I've used it several times and it shows the keys fine. Download from here, link down the bottom Part of the results Obviously not going to show full key. Simply download, unzip the three files all in a folder double click keyfinder - never ever run as admin either.
    MURPHIES LAW THOUGH ILLOGICAL as per NORMAL IS ACTUALLY THE MOST LOGICAL SOLUTION OF ALL.

    I've only ever had to do it in Vista. Haven't actually tried it or needed it in Windows 7 yet.
