ProduKey is a free program that can display the product ID and Product Keys used in your installed copies of Windows, MS Office, Internet Explorer, SQL Server, and Exchange server.

I’ve decided that I need to clean install Windows on my PC and re-build my system. Only problem is that although my laptop came pre-installed with Windows XP and Microsoft Office 2003, I’ve somehow lost the CD’s that came with it. Which is not that big of a problem, really, as I can always use Windows XP and Office CD’s from work, and I can download the drivers needed from the Dell website.

The only thing that remains is to find out what my serial numbers/activation keys are for XP and Office that I can use in my clean install.

ProduKey is a tiny program that simply unzips into a directory and delivers the Product IDs and Keys for Microsoft products in a single click.

Before I found this one I looked at 2 other programs that did the same thing, but for some reason they both had trouble with my MS Office Product Key. This may have been due to the fact that I have a beta version of Office 2007 installed as well. ProduKey had no such problems, and in fact gave me the Product Key of both versions of MS Office that I had installed.

This is a very handy app, and you never really know when you might need it. If you”re looking for this functionality I recommend this product highly.
