I need to find a way to get the keys from programs already installed so that if I ever need to re image the computer I still have them.
Here is a list of what I need to figure out how to get keys from:
Microsoft Office Pro 2010
Adobe CS4
Bejeweld 2 Deluxe
Diablo II
Quicken 2009
Zuma's Revenge


I dont know if theres a method to look at any keys installed on a computer or if you have to figure out how to do each one individually.

You could try SIW 2011 Home Edition , scroll down the webpage, near the bottom.

Louis,
That program is great but I noticed all my Adobe keys (probably just one for all the programs) is partially hidden with asterisks would you, or anyone, know of how to disable this or would this be like a safety feature.

Is there a tutorial on how to search for specific programs for Magical Jelly bean finder. It looks like the paid version of this program is exactly what I need..

I think it will automatically find the keys or serials if it can when you start the program.

Yeah it looks like it's automatic but theres a config file that can be modified to add places to look, i think. from the site "An optional config file - this functionality lets you pull a key stored in the registry for any software. A sample config file is included in the zip and can be seen here: keyfinder.cfg"

this is the best i could find http://www.networkworld.com/community/node/30529.

it's basically just adding the registry location to the cfg file, for the user name and or cd key etc.
