    Where in either the Registry or in a folder will I find the Product ID Key for XP Pro?

    Open The System Control Panel. You will see:

    Registered To:
    <Your Name>
    <Your Orginization>
    <Product ID>

    Thanks JJB6486 but that's not the XP product ID Key. I'm not sure what that number relates to.

    here you go: keep in mind..there is a product id which is text...and there is also binary: both can be found here:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

    that is for Win XP..


    there is also a reg section that is here:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

    this is just for windows.. you'll only find a text PRod ID code there..not binary..

    good luck!!

    Sorry i think I caused some confusion. I mean the Product Key that you use when you install the program. Not the Product ID which I accept is the one showing in Control Panel

    just search for the thread involving product activation and such it was listed in there where the value is stored.
