Microsoft CD Keys, CD Key Generator, Genuine Advantage Validation

I am no fan of Microsoft for a lot of different reasons which I won't go through here. However, one of the things that I think is so insane is the silly CD Keys that they put on the cases of the CD. Anyone who is thorough enough to copy a CD would certainly copy the CD Key. However, the average guy who just files the CD away after a successful installation may very well separate the actual CD from the CD case (which are often not clearly marked). Fortunately just about any Microsoft CD Key will do. So this web site is to help out people who have legitimately bought/received a Microsoft CD (non-OEM variety), but have lost their CD case with the key. If you have a CD from Microsoft that you got from an OEMer (for example, it came with your computer), follow the link to MS OEM Numbers.

Windows XP

I just recently heard that XP installation CDs have a valid CD key right on the CD. Explore the CD and navigate to the i386 folder. Open the file UNATTEND.txt and scroll down to the last line. You will find your Windows XP Product key there. It was there on an old XP CD SP2 I had around. If you find a CD key on your installation CD, please let me know how it works out. My guess is that these keys on the CD are best to use as there would be the same CD key for thousands of computers (all the CDs which were printed with that key) so Microsoft would have a hard time invalidating a CD key which is used legitimately by thousands of computers. The CD I had has a key of 'CD87T-HFP4C-V7X7H-8VY68-W7D7M'. I wonder if that key will work for anyone else (my XP computers all have legitimate Microsoft keys already)? This web page is now located at its 139th home, so it seems to bother the people at Microsoft. My reading of the law is that there is nothing illegal contained in it (as CD keys are neither copyrighted nor trademarked), but that doesn't keep them from complaining to our current host and getting the pages deleted. I was able to get a copy of a previous host's original complaint (they got another one later and booted me). They also got the DNS (domain name) for our friends at www.wampa.net pulled until they stopped providing a permanent link to this page. Sigh! It would be best to bookmark the link is http://brian.carr.name/. That page has a button along the top that will take you to the current server. What a bother, but it keeps the information accessible.

If you have a partially or fully functioning system, you can visit:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/product_cd_key_viewer.html, http://www.skaro.net/cd-keyreader/, or http://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder.shtml
to get the current keys you are using (so that you will have them if you need them later). Right now that seems the easiest way to go with the pitfalls that MS is making for us.

High School and University Students

It looks like Microsoft has opened up free versions of Visual Studio 2008, Windows Server 2008, SQL Server 2008, and Virtual PC via download for students. They do have a verification program (which is understandable) so I can't say how well it works. Check out the full list at https://www.dreamspark.com/. Good luck.

Genuine Advantage

In 2005 Microsoft started introducing a new program to trip users up, Genuine Advantage. It appears that Genuine Advantage is somewhat of a misnomer as the only useful thing it does is generate more revenue for Microsoft. For now the best way to avoid this 'license checker' is to never agree to the EULA that goes with it (for now watch for the title Genuine Advantage, but be cautious of any program that requires a new EULA). Given its very negative value to the customer, Microsoft insists that you agree to their terms in an agreement before installing it. If you don't agree it even gives you the option of never being asked again about it. Sadly this is only after the fact advice. I have heard that you can roll back your system to the previous state before the last set of updates and remove it.

With the latest version of Windowns Update, you can't get normal updates without verifying your license. However, you still get the security updates (which is good as Windows is like swiss cheese (full of holes) for viruses), but you can't get the latest enhancements (which is also good as you hardly need new bugs and holes for viruses to exploit). For example, you won't be able to get Internet Explorer (IE) 7, but you probably shouldn't be running IE or Outlook anyway. Those are the two best ways to get viruses. Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird are each quite nice and not nearly as virus prone as their Microsoft equivalents (and they are free).

Microsoft published a procedure that removes the pre-release verions of Genuine Advantage at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/921914. For your convenience I have included the excerpt that worked for me (I have two systems which have Windows XP installed and two certificates of authenticity, but only one was installed with the 'correct' key for the CD I was using at the time). If you need to change your CD key as Genuine Advantage doesn't like your current one, visit http://xphelpandsupport.mvps.org/how_do_i_change_the_windows_xp_p.htm for a description of how to change a bad key to a good one.

I have two systems that have Windows XP installed (along with other OSes of course) and one had been installed with a generated key (though I have two licenses for XP). When they switched to the real Genuine Advantage I was able to give in my real CD key (from the certificates) and stop the annoying messages. However, now I can't test methods to get around their license checks (they don't tell you how to go back to the old 'bad' key). Drats. On KexNew.com there is a package by Matt (no last name, I wonder why) which gets you around WGA (or Windows Genuine Advantage) checking. You can get it at programs/WPPerm_v1.0.zip. If that link doesn't work for you, you can try http://rapidshare.com/files/364292565/WPPerm_v10.zip.

It is really five files. Opening it will show you the five files and you should open the file WP_Readme.txt. It explains what to do with the four other files. It mentions that it works with pirated copies of Windows XP and Office, but it will also work with a legally purchased copy of Windows XP and Office in case you have lost the legal key (this page does not encourage pirating software). Please try it out and let me know how it works for you. I have checked it for viruses and trojans, but we all need to be careful....

There is a new procedure for getting around Genuine Advantage with Windows XP SP3 which is a little cleaner than past approached. You can try it at: programs/Antiwpa3.zip. I am happy with SP2 and haven't tried it, so please let me know how it works for you. Thanks.

I have a link to a manual procedure for getting around activation. It also included a link to http://rapidshare.com/files/84965644/patch.zip.html which does the update for you.

Vista and Genuine Advantage checks.

There seems to be a procedure for getting around the activation and check in procedures for Vista. You can find it (for now) at: http://www.haklabs.com/2007/bypass-vista-activation-with-paradox. I haven't been able to try it as I am avoiding Vista (I seem to be such a Luddite). Please let me know how it works for you and I can update these pages.

Windows Activation

With the advent of MS Office 2000 SR1 and all the XP and 2002 releases, MS seems to have gone the route of mandatory registration which makes reinstallations and such really difficult when you lose the old key. There is a program that seems to be able to test if a key meets the MS requirements and can also generate keys at random until it finds one that should work. It supports for Windows XP, Office XP and Visio XP called XPKey.exe.

There are new generations of key generators for Windows XP and Office which run faster and can generate SP1 and SP2 acceptable keys. I don't have any Windows XP SP1 CD's or MS Office (I run OpenOffice which is free, open source (so it should be available for a while), handles MS format files, and works pretty well (you can download from http://openoffice.org)), so I can't test the new features. If the standard XPKey.exe doesn't work for you, try XPKeySP2.exe.

Recently (end of 2007) virus scanners have been flagging and deleting XPKeySP2.exe. They seem to think it is a trojan, but I have had my copy for over ten years and no one has reported it trying to get beyond firewalls. I am considering contacting McAfee and asking them to really check it (the error they give is that it looks like a generic trojan which is to say it was built with tools commonly used by hackers). If you learn anything more about this, please send it on to me. Thanks.

From what I have heard it can generate keys for both the older and newer versions of Windows XP and is much faster. XPKeySP2.exe also generates keys for Office XP (and these are reported to work with Office 2003, even home edition) and Windows Server 2003 keys. However, to generate SP2 keys for corporate (VLK) licenses, you need to specify the range of 640-500000 to 640-599999. Please let me know how it works for you at [email protected] .name (take out the space). There is also a nicer program to activate your Windows XP installation without contacting Microsoft, KeyChng2.exe.

There is also a procedure to get past activation for XP as described at http://www.ehow.com/how_6317305_activate-windows-xp-key.html. It did not work for one person, please let me know how it works for you.

Office 2007 Key Generator

Someone sent me a key generator that might be for Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007. You can try it at programs/MSO2k7_kg.zip. Just press the 'search' button and it will generate a key. The author is working on an addition to activate Vista, but that doesn't work yet. Please let me know how these work for you as I don't have Office 2007 so can't really test it. I myself have switched to OpenOffice as it is open source and free. It can read and write MS formatted files and works quite nicely (I use it at home and prefer it to MS Office which I use at work). You can get it at: http://openopenoffice.org.

Traditional CD Keys

Another person sent me a procedure for getting around the need for a CD key with Win 98 and Win ME. Here are the instructions as they were sent to me. If they are useful to you let me know. If you can make them clearer, send a new version back to me. They also tell you where the CD Key and product ID are kept in the registry so that you can look them up with an existing installation.

If you want to make up your own key of the form nnn-nnnnnnn, it seems that the first three digits can be any number you like while the last seven digits must add up to a multiple of seven. A really boring (but easy to type key) is:

111-1111111

This key has been used successfully with:

  • BackOffice 4.5 (Beta 2)
  • Flight Simulator 98 (OEM)
  • Football
  • Liquid Motion 1.0
  • Monster Truck Madness
  • Office 97 Pro
  • Plus! 98
  • Publisher 98
  • SQL Server Enterprise Edition
  • Visual C++ 6.0 Standard Edition
  • Visual Studio 6 (Enterprise and Pro) and 97
  • Windows NT
  • Word 97

I have also read that if you take an upgrade CD key and add one to the first set of numbers (whether three or four digit) then the CD key will be for the full edition.

If that didn't work, try this:

465-6389583

I am not sure what CD this is from, but I am compiling a list of all Microsoft applications that this CD Key works with. It seems to have been the standard with older CD's (95 thru 97). This key has been used successfully with:

  • Exchange 5.5
  • Flight Simulator 95
  • Monster Truck Madness
  • Office 98 for MacIntosh
  • Office 2001 for MacIntosh
  • Publisher 97
  • Publisher 98 (with 0465 in first block)
  • Sidewinder Game Pad CD
  • Visual Basic 4.0 Enterprise
  • Visual Basic 6.0a Professional Edition
  • Visual C++ 4.0 and 5.0
  • Visual C++ 4.0 Professional
  • Visual C++ 5.0 Professional Edition
  • Visual C++ 6.0 Pro
  • Visual Studio 97
  • Windows NT 4.0 Workstation
  • Windows 95/98 Plus!
  • Windows 95 Upgrade
  • Windows 98 Beta 3
  • Works 4.5

If you are installing an OEM CD on a PC with an existing copy of Windows, you can sometimes get around the complaint that you it only works on new PC's by deleting or renaming the file 'c:windowswin.com'. Likewise, if you have an upgrade CD and it doesn't see the version of Windows that you need, often by just copying that file from an exisiting installation (or CD or diskette, wherever you can find it) will satisfy the installation program (pressing F8 will give you options on boot).

Please send me an E-mail ([email protected] .name, take out the space) if you find other CD's that it works with.

98 CD's seem to require a longer CD Key (extra digit). If you need four digits for the first section, try:

7777-7777777

This key has been used successfully with:

  • MS Exchange Server 5.0 and 5.5.

If you find another CD that this CD key works with, please let me know which CD at [email protected] .name (take out the space).

So if the CD Key above did not work, try this:

1112-1111111

This key has been used successfully with:

  • Office 97
  • Office 97 Pro
  • Outlook 98
  • Power Point 97 Upgrade
  • Project 98
  • Publisher 5.0 and 98
  • Microsoft Works
  • Word 97

If that one doesn't work for you, try this:

8090-3192571

This key has been used successfully with:

  • Access 97
  • Front Page 98
  • Office 97 Pro
  • Outlook 98
  • Project 98
  • Publisher 98, English, Spanish Version
  • Visual Basic 5.0 Professional and Enterprise Edition
  • Word 97

Please send me an E-mail ([email protected] .name, take out the space) if you find other CD's that it works with. And thanks to the people who have helped keep me informed of what CD's require what key.

The format for the nnnn-nnnnnnn. The first four digits seem to make a difference, but even versus odd totals are rumored to indicate an OEM versus upgrade CD (this hasn't been worked out). The last seven digits still must add up to a multiple of seven, but certain combinations like all ones and anything ending with a zero are disallowed. 4157-7777777 seems to work and is easier to type.

Windows 98

If your computer came with Windows 98 (i.e. you did not upgrade your computer to Windows 98), you may need to use an OEM number which you find via this link.

With Windows 98, MS seems to have gone crazy with the length of the CD Key or Product Key. There see to only be about three common families of CD keys, OEM, full retail, and upgrade retail. The main thing seems to be just using a CD key from the same family. Two less common families are corporate (which can sometimes bypass the mandatory registration process) and academic.

If any of these keys work for you, could you send me the key which worked for you (first five characters is fine, I know the rest), the language of your version (English, Spanish, etc.) and anything else you know about its origin. I would like to be able to advise people which key to try as it is such a pain to type in these absurdly long keys. Send them to me at [email protected] .name (take out the space). If you have to use yet another Windows 98 CD Key, you could also send me the key along with what you know about this version and I will post it here in case the CD case gets separated from the CD and you can use this page as an archive of the key.

A most kind person sent me a load of other Windows OS keys. I will present them all in a separate page for you to look through if none of the above worked.

As a last resort, one person called Microsoft at 1-800-652-2342 when no keys worked with his version of Windows 98. They then promptly looked up a working key for his computer and sent a CD key to him directly via E-Mail (with no hassles).

99 CD's have gone back to the shorter CD Key, but they have different formats from the older keys. Try these:

425-1958694

This key is from MS Money 99. Both this key and the following have been used with Visual Studio 6 Professional Edition. The above key has been used with Visual Basic 6 Fundamentals.

813-1283563

This key is from MS Works 99.

A Serial Number for Visual Basic 6.0 Professional Edition is:

82891-81458-26914-54736

This serial number is also supposed to work with Visual C++, FoxPro, J++, ... as the Product ID for the 6.0 Professional Edition.

A CD Key for Publisher 98:

21897-00233844-96848

A CD Key for Office 2000 and Office 10 beta is:

MP4F9-W6C8V-HTCCT-T7M7R-Y7K3Y

with product ID of:

82503-711-0000007-67584

Rumor has it that the 711-0000007 is the only part that matters and it must meet the old nnn-nnnnnn requirements. Also, if the CD Key does not work for you, it has been reported that you can edit the product ID in the registry to match the one shown here and then the CD Key will be accepted (I haven't tried this as I don't have Office 2000).

CDs Key for Office 2000 are:

  • DR674-KJWQW-HGQKT-WGDBG-4RKY3 with product ID of 450-5693453

  • CJ7XX-Y2BD8-V48XQ-KK676-BBPGD
  • GC6J3-GTQ62-FP876-94FBR-D3DX8 Pro
Previously this list had included GC6J3-GTQ62-FP876-94FBR-D3DX8 but Office 2000 has invalidated all installations using this key whenever SR-1 or SR-1A is installed. There is an article talking about this at http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/4/18683.html. Hope you don't get hit with this 'invalidated registration'.

CD Keys for Office 2000 Professional are:

  • H4GW2-2M9C4-R8YWX-BYJFT-KKFQ3 Also works with Word portion of MS Works Suite 2000 (english and swedish) and Word 2000 as well as Word 2000 (HP OEM and others), SR1 OEM.

  • CFGBV-3MC8H-KW2XJ-8CVP6-KBRM9 (Also SR-1, but needs registration then).

A CD Key that worked for Works Suite 2000 is:

  • KVCT4-RRKTT-68C39-FCT7B-CGRKD

CD Keys for Office 10 for Mac are:

  • HGRK7-74222-YDF4X-VKP93-R8X76

  • BDGFC-RTX84-TD6DD-XWX3H-HQDW8

With Office 2000 SR1 Microsoft has added a wrinkle of limiting you to 48 uses after you enter the CD key until you register. Once you register you get back another CD Code that you have to enter with the CD Key (how many numbers do you have to type in correctly to be qualified to use Office 2000). Further, this CD Code changes with each installation (can't be reused over and over again on multiple PC's). Any ideas on how to simplify this installation process would be appreciated.

Also, if you install the service pack for Office 2000, it will try to register with Microsoft and the program will stop working if you don't have an unused CD Key. XPKey.exe (above) might be able to give you a key that works or, if you are running under Windows XP, you might be able to back out the service pack by doing a System Restore (file accessories system tools system restore) to the point before the installation of the service pack.

Another approach is to call Microsoft on one of their 800 numbers any time you run into this glitch (and again assuming you are doing a legal reinstallation of your software). That way they have to pay (for the long distance charges) for your inconvenience. If it gets too expensive, they may give up on trying to force everyone to register every single installation (and reinstallation).

If you get stuck with the mandatory registration problem, you can always call Microsoft at 1-800-652-2342. If you have a reasonable story they will sometimes give you a new key to use. It takes time to get through, but at least it is at Microsoft's expense (as they are the ones who initiated the silly mandatory registration it is good that they bear some of the expense).

I found another program, KeyChang.exe, that should be able to change your Windows XP key to one generated by XPKey.exe and then activate your version without really contacting Microsoft. First run XPKey as described earlier and get a couple of keys. Then run 'KeyChang.exe' and folllow the directions. When asked for the CD Key, enter one of the keys you generated previously. Once you reboot the system all should be changed and you will have a unique CD key that should allow you to download the Windows XP SP1 update. Let me know how it works for you.

NOTE: The program 'KeyChang.exe' has a warning note which states you must have a Windows Installation CD available when changing the CD Key, however I have never had to use one so you should be OK even if you don't have the CD handy.

Microsoft is concerned about the use of corporate CD keys to avoid activation. There is a most informative web page by labmice.techtarget.com for what to do with Service Pack 1 of Windows XP which blocks out certain commonly used corporate CD keys. However, this page was pulled for a while at the request of Microsoft. In case you can't access it now, I made an excerpt of this page so you can see the sort of useful information that Microsoft finds objectionable.

If when upgrading, you get GetIUMS problems with msdart.dll, just download MDAC 2.8 from windows.com and install it. Then your problems should go away.

Sun Fire X2250 Server Operating System Installation Guide
C H A P T E R 4
Installing Windows Server 2003

This chapter describes the installation process for installing Windows Server 2003 on a Sun Fire X2250 server.


Note - Alternatively, you can choose to use the Sun Installation Assistant (SIA) to install Windows Server 2003 on a Sun Fire X2250 server. SIA provides and installs the required device drivers for you. For more information about using SIA to install the Windows Server 2003 operating system, see the Sun Installation Assistant for Windows and Linux User’s Guide (820-3357)

This chapter contains the following topics:

Installation Requirements

Before starting the Windows Server installation, you should ensure that following requirements are met.

  • Supported format of Windows Server distribution files. Depending on the installation method chosen to install Windows, you will need to have either the Windows Server distribution media, ISO CD-ROM image, or RIS image available for installation.
  • Minimum supported Windows Server operating system. The X2250 server supports the following English-only Windows Server operating system editions:
    • Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition (R2 with SP2, or
      SP2) (32-bit and 64-bit)
    • Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition (R2 with SP2, or SP2)
      (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Software RAID. By default, the Sun-supplied disk drives are shipped without a RAID configuration. If you need to RAID your disk drive(s), you can configure a RAID prior to installing the Windows operating system. For more information see, Configure Software RAID (optional).
  • Established console access to installation. At this point you should have already chosen a supported console option to display the input or output of the installation. For more information, see Supported Console Options.
  • System device drivers required. The Sun Fire X2250 Server Tools and Drivers CD provides the system device drivers that must be installed. You will be required to have this CD to install the system device drivers, which is described later in this chapter. This CD is shipped in the Documentation and Media Kit, which is a customer-orderable option. Alternatively, you can download the installation driver scripts that are provided on the CD from the following site:

http//www.sun.com/servers/x64/X2250/downloads.jsp

  • Sun Fire X2250 Server Product Notes. You should review the Sun Fire X2250 Server Product Notes for any late-breaking information concerning Windows Server 2003 installations.
  • Microsoft’s Windows Server 2003 Installation Documentation. In addition to using the instructions in this chapter to boot the Windows Server 2003 installation program and to install system device drivers, you should also refer to the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 documentation to complete the operating system installation.

Install Windows Sever 2003 Using Local or Remote Media

This section describes how to boot the Windows Server 2003 installation media from local or remote media.

Prerequisites

The following requirements must be met prior to performing the Windows Server 2003 installation:

  • Established installation environment. For more information, see Supported Console Options and Supported Installation Media Options
  • The BIOS Utility boot order should have the proper CD/DVD-ROM device (local, external, or virtual) specified as the first boot device. For instance:
    • When performing the installation from the ILOM Remote Console, you should have the Virtual CD/DVD-ROM device set as the temporary boot device.
    • When performing the installation from the local DVD-ROM drive, you should have the local DVD device set as the temporary boot device.
    • When performing the installation from an external CD/DVD-ROM device, you should have the External CD/DVD-ROM boot device set as the temporary boot device.

If necessary, you can set a temporary boot device during the server’s start-up phase (after Step 2 in this procedure) by pressing F8.

  • If a software RAID is being implemented, you are required to:
    • Perform the procedure Configure Software RAID (optional) prior to performing the Windows Server 2003 installation.
    • Insert the RAID driver floppy diskette into a floppy diskette drive that is attached to the local server or system hosting the Sun ILOM Remote Console client.

For more information about creating the RAID driver floppy diskette, see To Copy RAID Driver to a Floppy Diskette. For more information about configuring redirection of a floppy storage device in the Sun ILOM Remote Console, see Appendix A.

  • Temporarily change the boot order in the BIOS Utility so that the CD/DVD drive is listed as the first boot device. Note that after installing the RAID drivers you will need to change the boot order to point to the CD/DVD-ROM drive location of the Windows Server 2003 installation media or ISO image.

To Install Windows Server 2003 Using Local or Remote Media

1. Prepare the installation media by performing one of the following:

  • For distribution CD/DVD. Insert the Windows Server 2003 distribution media into either the local X2250 server CD/DVD drive or the virtual CD/DVD drive on the client hosting the Sun ILOM Remote Console application.

Note that if you are using the Sun ILOM Remote Console application to perform the installation, ensure that the CD-ROM option is selected in the Device menu of the Sun ILOM Remote Console application.

  • For ISO images. Ensure that the ISO CD image containing the Windows distribution files are readily available on a network-shared location or on the system hosting the ILOM Remote Console (Device menu ->CD-ROM Image).

For more information about redirecting storage devices in the Sun ILOM Remote Console, see Appendix A.

2. Reset the X2250 server, for example:
