I've searched the forums and downloads and can't find what I need or anyone else mentioning what I am looking for. What I am looking for is some sort of program that will scan a registry on an old drive that may or may not be boot able, to extract license keys and/or serial numbers.  I have to Data Recovery programs that I bought several years ago and the drive that these were installed on is not boot able right now. I had made duplicates of these programs with their keys and registration etc on 2 different CD's of which I can't find as of now. The way these were registered is through a license reg key sent to me via email long time ago. They had me import their key and then I had to enter my registration info they sent to me when I purchased them.


Any help would be appreciated..

Just use regedit in windows mate.

Open regedit.exe from the command line, then click on either HKCU or HKLM and then click Load Hive (Plug the old drive in a dockign station or something like a sata cable etc).

Name it something and then start looking.


Once you have finished, unmount the hive.
