XP disc code

I have mislaid the activation code for my XP upgrade disc. Any way to obtain it from the disc?

Ring Microsoft on 0870 60 10 100 and tell them what has happened. If they believe you they will issue a new code.

Hi, type "XP activation" without commas into Search panel on left, then click on green arrow.
Lots of info there.

Try Winkeylite as advertised in Octobers mag.
Software is FREE!

"Any way to obtain it from the disc?"

If you mean your hard disk - yes - Everest click here amongst others.

If you mean the XP CD - then no - because it isn't on the CD.

do as DieSse has said, download Everest and install.

Now load the programme, click on operating system then on operating system again and it will show you the product key and ID

Or Belarc Advisor, the previous version of Everest before Lanalys took over, will do the same for all your software with Product Keys.
