cd Key numbers for word 2000

  Randeep 12:36 14 Dec 2005

my computer crashed and i had to format my drive and reload all the software.
After reloading word 2000 i found out that I could not find the 25 characters CD KEY.

I remember reading in one of the past editions of PC Advisor that it was possible to do this. Can anyone help!.

I lost the CD key for my XP Home. Spoke to Microsoft who asked me a few pertinent questions to verify that I did in fact have a genuine CD in front of me, then gave me a new key.
I was well chuffed - didn't expect them to be so helpful.
Good luck if you try the same. I don't know of any other way to retrieve a "lost" CD key.

If you try a web-search you may well find such keys available on the web (I had to do this once when I bought a game that didn't have it's cd key in the box!), although of course it'd probably be pretty much illegal.
