"Just what I needed"

October 01, 2010  |  By crevering

 |  Version: Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder 2.0.1

Pros

Easy to use.
Saves keys as .txt file.
Can read non-bootable drives.

Cons

I didn't have any issues with this product.

Summary

I was able to read the product keys for Win Vista and two versions of MS office from my corrupt HDD, so I could reinstall from scratch. (I installed bad HDD as a slave in a bootable machine and pointed Jelly Bean to the user.dat file).

"Great for remote access"

January 21, 2010  |  By lindamoran57

 |  Version: Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder 2.0.1

Pros

Had to retrieve product key on my mother's computer who lives a half hour away. She is disabled and could not turn the system unit around to read the sticker. It's a handy tool, and easy to use.

Cons

Not useful if what it retrieves is a product key that has already been corrupted. That's what happened in my case.

"perfect tool for the job"

December 22, 2009  |  By lesherm

 |  Version: Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder 2.0.1

Pros

this utility does exactly what it advertises: it retrieves product keys for windows. There is no bloat, no install, only what it needs to work. Just click the executable and it gives you the key. Best of all, it's free!

Cons

May register a false positive on some antivirus suites.

Summary

If you lost your windows product key and need to retrieve it, look no further.

"Perfect for when you need to rebuild people's machines"

June 13, 2009  |  By browneaction

 |  Version: Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder 2.0.1

Pros

There's not even an installation, just click the exe and receive copy and pastable product keys.

Cons

There's no cons to it as it does what it is supposed to do and costs nothing. It would be nice if it could do ever app installed though

Summary

Since not everyone is organised enough to keep copies of their license codes, then this is great for rebuilding those people's machines. Since retrieving these encrypted codes yourself from a registry is out of most people's circle or abilities, then this product does exactly what it's supposed to do does a perfectly good job. Plus it is free and leaves no footprint on the machine.
