I have no experience with the program you mention, but have a look at Belarc Advisor.

Windows 10 does not use a product code, they use a Digital Entitlement which can not be found using either of the previously mentioned applications.

I suspect what you found is the generic key for that specific build.

 

Example, for the 10240 build the generic code is T44CG-JDJH7-VJ2WF-DY4X9-HCFC6

 

The digital entitlement is registered by Microsoft so you will never need to produce it for a reinstallation.  If you reinstall the same version of Windows 10 with the same components Microsoft will recognize the build and automatically apply the digital entitlement.

Jelly Bean still works wonderfully in Windows 10, my friend wrote it and maintains it.

There is a very enlightening article at PCWorld titled "Why you can't find your product key".  For those of you who don't understand that the digital entitlement replaces the product code this is a must read.

There is one exception to the digital entitlement, if the installation was made from a retail copy, or the digital copy, or a volume Licensing of Windows 10 you will have the 25 alphanumerical character product code.

The OP never said that they were trying to find the product key for Windows 10, you just assumed that. Why you assumed that is beyond me.

Dan, Rereading the OP's original post, you might be correct in your assumption. I, on the other hand, assumed that the OP was trying to find the product codes for installed software on his Windows 10 system.

 

 

I guess we will have to wait until the OP replys to find out for sure.

That is part of what made me believe that they were referring to the product code.

 

But the clincher was the title of this topic.

Back when Windows 10 was free I used this attached .vbs script & it showed Product ID & Product Key & OEM Key.

I don't have the latest version of Windows 10 so I don't know if it still works.

You could download it & try it.

 

Attached File  ShowKey v1.3.vbs.zip   1.33KB   0 downloads

 

You should scan it before using it.

 

You will see something similar to this---

What it should show if it works with Windows 10---

I think everyone is right, it's my misunderstanding about product ID, I'm just an old geek that needs updating from time to time :-)

I changed my title this morning to reflect my current social status... Bleeping Old Fart.  I too need updating from time to time as well. :thumbup2:
