Magic Jelly Bean

The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is a freeware utility that retrieves your Product Key (cd key) used to install windows from your registry. It also has a community-updated configuration file that retrieves product keys for many other applications. Another feature is the ability to retrieve product keys from unbootable Windows installations.

If you need something more powerful, please compare Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder with wonderful tool called "Recover Keys". This advanced product key finder is not free, however it doesn't cost much for what it does.

I've also used this at work many times, very good program and can save you a ton of time! Software licensing shouldn't be so hard to transfer for legitimate purposes!
I give this one five stars because I used it at work, many times, years before the rise of full diagnostic suites like Everest. I had this readily available on USB flash drives for work use. I began to appreciate and like AIDA64 (formerly Everest) for its full diagnostic abilities better and it has been awhile since I've had to do a large office migration without the proper licensing documentation. This is the original key finder for Windows. It worked its magic many times when people were having problems and needed immediate assistance. What is its status now? Clearly, a new, better, paid version, called Recover Keys, is available, but its not my cup of tea right now. I haven't used Magic Jelly Bean in years because I haven't needed to. But, if I was to do a full migration, and all software licensing information / product key data could not be found using AIDA64, I would jump right back to Magic Jellybean Keyfinder and its pro version quickly and without hesitation. In a work intensive environment, this was a godsend. A trick that few business owners knew about. One of the magician's secrets, so to speak. This will get you the information you need when you simply don't have it. Great idea to post it as a resource here. If you are considering working in IT out in the field, this was essential to have and, for many people, still is.
