When we want to use Microsoft Windows Operating System and Microsoft Office as word processing and spreadsheet for daily activities of work, we have to have a license to use both kind of software. The license we have usually come together when we bought that operating system and office software. The license (CD key) will be ask when we install the software at the very first before we continue to install. After input the correct license key, the installation will be continue until the end, then it ready to use.
After everything finish, we can not see the license which already input before (CD Key), we only can see the register or product number. This is no problem because we do not need that license key anymore. But maybe we will need it when we want to reinstall our computer, let's say because software crash or virus or anything that make the software become corrupt. It's ok if we still can find the license key from the CD or sticker, maybe become problem if we can not found the sticker placing somewhere we don't know.
For this problem, we need a supported software, such as Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder. This is free software to read the Microsoft product license like Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office. Now, the latest version of this software is v2.0.1. We can download the software from :
This software is small and easy to use, just download the compressed zip files, and extract to any directory. It will show 3 files: keyfinder.cfg, keyfinder.exe, and license.txt. Double click the keyfinder.exe to start using program without install anything. The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is develop as Open Source and registered at Sourceforge Project.
Do not worry about trojan and spyware when using this software, because the source can be read by anybody, so we can use if safely.
Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder at the latest version can use also for Microsoft Windows Vista, Windows 2003 Server, Windows 2008 Server, Office 2003, Office 2007, and of course Windows XP and the product before it. This software can generate and print or save the keys that we want to find.
