I currently have OfficeXP Standard installed on my computer. Its registered activated 100% legal. My problem is that I've lost my jewel case, and thus my product key. I desperately need to reformat, but I must get my key first. Can someone please tell me how to extract my product key from my install.

Thanks in advance,
Artex

You will probably have to call Microsoft and explain your story, I do not think it would be legal any other way....

Sorry mate about the mix up (cannot read it seems).....your product key is shown if you open up word/excel or any office app and look under "about microsoft ******" on your help tab you will see your product key look at my attachment

Yeah I think the CD is on that screen that flashes by for about 1/10th of a second when you first open word.

Okay then try this, I did a search on my C: drive for my office XP key and I found it in this file:


C:\Documents and Settings\(your user name here)\Local Settings\Temp\Office XP Professional Setup(0001)_Task(0001).txt

search for this line and your key would be where the x's are
RegisterProdID,CustomActionData=11111-111-1111111-11111\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\#xA11111111111111111111111111111111111

(EDIT) the above is all one line.

The key you have to enter during installtion to authenticate and the Product Key you see after installtion are not the same. You need to call MS. They will give you a new key on the phone.
