Windows 7: Product Key Number for Windows 7 - Find and See

Anyone tried any of these methods described in this post lately? I tried couple of them and none of them appears to be working now. Perhaps some Windows update is preventing you from retrieving the key via a program?

Not that it is extremely important. I do have all my Windows 7 keys printed except that I have 4 computers with Windows 7 and I don't know which key belongs to which machine anymore.

Hello beyonddc,

Yes, they all still work just fine only if Windows 7 has been activated with the product key, and it's not a Windows 7 Enterprise with a volume license.

I like Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder.

When I ran the "Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder v2.0.9.5", the CD Key is...

CD Key: BBBBB-BBBBB-BBBBB-BBBBB-BBBBB

I tried to run the software as "Administrator" but no luck as well.

I didn't download the installer, I just downloaded the zip file that contains the software. I don't think that should matter though.

I also notice that the "Recover serials for Windows 7, 8 and Office 2010" feature is not part of the free version of "Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder". KeyFinder | Magical Jelly Bean

Perhaps that's the reason why I can't get my key because I need to purchase "Recover Keys" software instead?

It will show you the product key (license) number of Windows 7 with the free version (at least it did for me) as long as you are not running it in an Enterprise version that has a volume license. Volume licenses are not displayed.


Is your Windows 7 activated?

Yea, mine is activated.

I think I am running a Windows 7 pro enterprise version. The license key I got is from the school where I used to study.

That is why then.

Yep, that would be why then. Enterprise uses a volume license, and none of these programs will reveal a volume license.

"Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder" seems to display Win 7 Enterprise Key

I just used "Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder" to display the CD key of my Win 7 Enterprise SP1 install, so perhaps these instructions need to be checked in this regard.

Hello megabyte, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Are you using the free or paid for version of "Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder"?

HOW TO FIND AND SEE THE WINDOWS 7 PRODUCT KEY NUMBER

I just wanted to thank KONST, POSTED 27 Oct/2011. I just followed the easy instructions copied the below text, saved it, added a "2" before saving it with ext. vbs and voila! MY Windows 7 Pro KEY POPPED OUT IN SECONDS!!! THANK YOU KONST !!! You save me a lot of time !

Save this script to a text file.
Change the extension of the file to *.vbs
Run it.

Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
MsgBox ConvertToKey(WshShell.RegRead("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\DigitalProductId"))

Function ConvertToKey(Key)
Const KeyOffset = 52
i = 28
Chars = "BCDFGHJKMPQRTVWXY2346789"
Do
Cur = 0
x = 14
Do
Cur = Cur * 256
Cur = Key(x + KeyOffset) + Cur
Key(x + KeyOffset) = (Cur \ 24) And 255
Cur = Cur Mod 24
x = x -1
Loop While x >= 0
i = i -1
KeyOutput = Mid(Chars, Cur + 1, 1) & KeyOutput
If (((29 - i) Mod 6) = 0) And (i <> -1) Then
i = i -1
KeyOutput = "-" & KeyOutput
End If
Loop While i >= 0
ConvertToKey = KeyOutput
End Function
