Windows Me Edition - Lost Product Key

  pfhart 08:55 24 Jan 2005

Help - I done something stupid!!!!
I have uploaded the disk on my computer up to the point where I have to enter the product serial no. Unfortunately the slieve that the disk was put into, is the wrong sleeve with the wrong no on it. It appears that I have lost the number. Does anyone know if there is a way to retrieve the number from the disk - or can anyone please let me know a clever way to overcome this stupidity of mine as I cannot access my Computer at the moment!!!!

If the o/s was preinstalled look at the back of your computer there should be a label attached with the serial number on it.

pfhart, another way of finding it is to instal Belarc advisor (free) and it`ll be listed.
