Microsoft Office is a large and expensive software package. If you buy it, it's wise to save your Product ID and CD Key codes, preferably in a secure yet accessible place. The same goes for SQL Server and Exchange Server, and throw Windows in while you're at it. Failure to do so can result in elevated stress levels, should you need to repair or reinstall the software. If you didn't jump through all the hoops in the proper order, you're probably going to have to telephone Microsoft, and we know how you feel about that.

That's why we think it's probably not a bad idea to download and run NirSoft's ProduKey. This compact freeware identifies and displays the Product ID and CD Key for Microsoft Office, Windows, SQL Server, and Exchange Server. If you've lost the codes you need to reinstall these large bundles, ProduKey can help you recover them. It's an extremely simple tool, and completely portable as well. We simply clicked the program's icon, and it immediately opened with the Product ID and Product Key codes displayed for Windows 7, Internet Explorer, and Office. ProduKey also displayed the Installation Folder, Service Pack, and other extracted data. We could choose what headers we wanted the program to display from the Options menu, as well as grid lines, time display, and other settings. We could save, search, and copy data and call up properties pages from the toolbar, which also contained a Select Source feature for choosing how the program loads product codes. A Web-based Help file and documentation sheet contained lots of useful information such as version histories and known issues. It also does a good job of explaining how to use this admittedly simple tool, mostly in the form of Command-Line Options for power users.

ProduKey is a great little tool to have on hand, especially if you shelled out big for some hefty MS wares. Even if you don't download it, don't you feel better just knowing it exists?

"Wrong Information Provided"

October 03, 2015  |  By BearPuppy

2015-10-03 11:12:39  |  By BearPuppy

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

None that I could find.

Cons

As an early adopter of Windows 10 on multiple computers, I wanted to get the Product Keys for each of the installed upgrades. One computer was running Windows 7 Home Premium and one was running Windows 7 Pro, and both computers were upgraded using the direct download method from Microsoft.

I ran ProduKey after each upgrade but didn't get accurate information. According to ProduKey, the upgraded computer that had been running Win 7 Home Premium was now running Windows 10 Pro, and the computer that had been running Windows 7 Pro was now running Windows 10 "Ultimate" - a version that doesn't exist under Windows 10!

In addition to the program reporting the wrong versions of Windows 10, it compounded the error by reporting that these two different versions of Windows had the exact same Product Key - and neither of the keys were correct.

Summary

The lack of accurate information renders this program not only useless, but could even cause you to 'lose' an otherwise valid OS.

"Product Key Does its Job"

August 26, 2012  |  By wwgorman

2012-08-26 11:46:05  |  By wwgorman

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

The program provides the Product Key for Windows, Internet Explorer (usually same as Windows, and install Microsoft Office programs. It does it fast with no hassles.

Cons

The program only provides the Microsoft program keys. It would be nice to have a program that gabe you all of the installed program keys plus the serial number of your computer and an peripheral equipment attached.

Summary

The program provides the Product Keys for Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office (if installed) and Internet explorer. It provides nothing else.

"Good tool to have around!"

July 09, 2012  |  By Gordon308

2012-07-09 15:15:14  |  By Gordon308

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Worked for Windows XP and Office 2003 keycodes. Also pulled up product codes on Adobe Photoshop 7.0, Adobe Imagereader 7.0, and WinZIP.

Cons

A little lacking in documentation on procedures. Didn't pull some other software installed on the machine, but those codes could be found by starting each program and clicking on "About".

Summary

I was preparing an ancient machine for donation/disposal, but didn't have any of the original installation discs or product codes. I didn't want to sacrifice the software with the hardware, so it sure helped me out of a bind.

"Runs fast but is not up to date."

March 13, 2012  |  By desertseer

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Very quick to download. Very fast execution.

Cons

This product does not recognize Microsoft-Office Home and Business 2010. The demo version is free but they want to really want to sell you the full version for $24.95. Belartic Advisor works better and is really free.
