hi

I have 3 separate PCs with XP installed (all installed manually by me).

One of these installations is an old one (without SP2) and another is OEM.

However I've forgotten which PC has which version on.

Is there anywhere on PC (? registry) which has the product key (as written on the cd package) listed, so I can check which cd belongs to which PC ?

thanks

From Microsoft

To Find Your Current Product ID

1.


Click Start, click My Computer, and then click View System Information.

If your computer is set up in Classic view with the more familiar Start menu, click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.

2.


Click the General tab. You'll find your current Product ID under Registered to.

thanks

But that's not the same as product KEY, is it ?

It doesn't have letters in it & isn't the same as the key on the CD packaging.
