I was browsing BC when I came across a post made by Enthusiast that stated that Everest 1.51.195 has the ability to show license keys for software that the later versions will not. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/72477/memory-type-fit-computer/ (Post #3). So I thought "That sounds neat", and I uninstalled my 2.(whatever) version and installed 1.51.195. I am assuming that by license keys, Enthusiast is referring to the activation codes for any paid-for program, from security programs to video games. However, I have found the list of installed programs in Everest, but I cannot find any licence keys. Can someone tell me how to access this information? Or, if I am incorrect in my understanding of Enthusiast's description, could someone please clarify it for me? Nothing is wrong with my PC; I'm just interested in learning new things. Thank you to all who take the time to reply.

There are two other programs similar to the Everest Home utility.

Belarc Advisor that builds a detailed profile of your installed software and hardware, including Microsoft Hotfixes, and displays the results in your Web browser. It's a little more basic that Everest home.

And System Information for Windows by Gabriel Topala that literally tells just about everything about a system. One will find all license keys and passwords under the "Secrets" tab in the SIW utility. SIW provides much more information that the other two do combined.

While I have all three programs, I find myself using the SIW most of the time, more because I have it on a pen drive for portability and the program doesn't have to be installed.

These and many other freeware programs and utilities are noted in the BC post Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps

Thank you, KoanYoral. I have Belarc as well, too, but SIW is a new one to me. Downloaded it and will try it out. My original question about Everest still stands, though, if anyone knows.

No licence key listing in Everest that I've seen. Belarc has it. Includes what you type in and the registration number which is a composite of computer data and the key for Microsoft products.

Everest 1.51 has the COA listed in Operating Systems. Everest 2.02 and 2.2 do not have this feature.
As far as I know only Window"s COA is revealed in Belarc.
The MagicalJellyBean will reveal both the Window's and MS Office COA.
