Lost license key

I have PowerDVD 5 and need to reinstall it, unfortunately I've lost the case with the license key on it, is there any way I can recover the key from the disk?

If you have any proof of ownership, perhaps you could contact the maker of the software?

LOL don't beat about the bush woodchip!!

I 've had to reinstall windows and my original programs are still there including PowerDVD 5. Can I get the key fro any of these files?

As beeuuem says, try Cyberlink support, even if the licence key is in the registry it is likely to be encoded and any program to get it out would smack of piracy even if you have a legitimate copy

I tried the cyberlink site, in order to get a licence key I have to register as a member then send a jpeg of my disk, easy enough you'd think!!! unfortunately registration won't let me get beyond the bit where it asks for a license key - catch 22!!.

Download SIW from click here
Install it, run it and look in Software > Licences and the licence number should be displayed.
