Hi. I need to re-install w2k pro but I lost the certficate
with that code that I need to put in. Can anyone tell me
if there's a registry setting where I can find it?

Or of not, what can I do?

There's something in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersio
n\ProductID with a value of 51873-007-4877977-09414, but
that's not it, is it?

thanks.

Greetings --

The Windows 25-character Product Key (required to perform the
installation) is stored on the CD packaging on a bright orange sticker
that says "Do not lose this number." If it was an OEM (factory
installed) license, it's stored on a label that the PC manufacturer
affixed to the exterior of the PC case, or on the bottom of a laptop.

If it was a retail license and you have proof of purchase:

If it was an OEM license, you should contact whomever sold you the
computer; although very few manufacturers/vendors keep records of the
Product Keys they've sold, it's worth a try before you have to buy a
new license.
