I need to decode the CD Key (or Product Key) from the W2K/WinXP registries in VB 6. It's suppose to be located here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\DigitalProductId This is NOT the ProductId located here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\ProductId It's the same key you enter when you install Windows 2000 or Windows XP. The CD Key I'm talking about is plainly listed in your WINNT folder in the 2nd line of the $winnt$.inf text file, but I need it from the registry. If you don't see it there, it looks something like this "FDEWQ-PCVCB-T8IPQ-MP921-B6RPW". Please bid only if you're 100% sure how to do this, or have done this before. AIDA32 ([url removed, login to view]) does this if you want to see proof that it can be done. There's a utility that reads this in WinXP if you want to check your code: [url removed, login to view] The Key from this is the one I want, except I need it to coded in VB 6 *and* work in Win2K/XP. NT 4.0 doesn't seem to encode the CD Key, so no decoding is needed.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done. 2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request. 3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.
VB 6, Windows 2000 and Windows XP
