Where did you find yours? I have found if you own a computer you have to learn to do many things to keep them running. How come I search the official Microsoft pages for hours, and consult their robot reply service, all in vain, when a free, private and may I say groovy site can answer my questions concisely and simply.
Windows 10 is a special case, because it doesn't necessarily require a product key like older versions. Special Note: An important thing which needs mentioning is there are 2 different types of Windows product key you might have installed on your system. Users can retrieve it by issuing a command from the command prompt. The advice given here doesn't appear to be very accurate. You can copy or note this down somewhere to use it lo. Enter the desired product key and click on OK. No longer have to worry about productkey64 or anything else.

If you lost or forgot where you had stored your Windows product key, I have a solution for you. Today we will see how a simple VBS script can be used to show us the product key of an installed copy of Windows 10, Windows 8 or Windows 7. It is a simple solution to extract your product key from the OS installed on your PC without using any third party software. RECOMMENDED: Actually, earlier I posted a which used PowerShell. PowerShell might require additional user skills and extra tweaks to run unsigned cmdlets. Compared to PowerShell, this VBScript solution is almost perfect. All you need to do is to just click the file. I tested this trick on Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. It works flawlessly in all mentioned operating systems. I cannot tell you what a gem you have just provided now that Windows 10 reinstalls are starting to happen thanks to some users. No longer have to worry about productkey64 or anything else. Very nice work, today you win the internet! On four 2-Win 8. On the other two 1-Win 8. Does the script need to be extended for that purpose? Object, ByVal e As System. Load ShowMyVersion If Strings. Object, ByVal e As System. Object, ByVal e As System. Click Close End Sub End Class I hope it works for You. Thank you for providing this method, but I have a problem here. But my point is do those 2 keys suppose to have the same last 5 characters? In my case, they are different. If I reinstall windows 10, still I can use the key your script gave me to reactive windows? That is, all free Win10 Home upgraders have the same key, and similarly free Win10 Pro upgraders have the same key. You can actually change your hard disk and most other things but if you change your motherboard with another model then the activation will fail. Type in your 5 keys obtained earlier here, then press find…Then Volia…your key will be displayed on right side of screen. Both produced a different product keys. By comparing the 5 characters in the Activation tab on Windows 10, it seems that the vbs one is the correct one. The last one on the list is also a similar vbs script, although shorter than the one on your site. It was a bug in the script. Try to google it. Many web sites keep posting the script without credits. Hard to find the original author. It was several years ago. Updated the check for Enterprise so it makes more sense when simply reading it.
