Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder 2023 full offline installer setup for PC 32bit/64bit
If you need something more powerful, compare Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder with a tool called "Recover Keys". This advanced product key finder is not free, however, it doesn't cost much for what it does.
Features and Highlights
- Command line options - /save /savecsv /close /hive /file
- Load Hive option - allows you to load the registry hive of another Windows installation. To use, put the hard drive in a working machine (must also be Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8) or use Windows PE (not tested, should work) and click Load Hive. Then point it to the dead Windows install. If you're using Windows Vista, Administrator rights are required for this feature. You may have to right-click on the Keyfinder and run as Administrator.
- Improved Save & Print! - save & print options will now include all keys. Save is also available in text or CSV.
Can I retrieve the product key from the Windows CD?
No. Product keys are not stored on CDs themselves. When you enter your key while installing, it's checked against an algorithm to verify that the key is valid.
I don't have a product key. Will your program generate one for me?
No. The Keyfinder is not a key generator. The Key Finder Tool reads the registry and extracts the key that was used to install Windows.
Why doesn't the product key returned match the one on my sticker?
If you purchased your PC with Windows already installed from a large manufacturer such as Dell or HP, it's likely that Windows was installed using an OEM key instead of the actual key for your PC. This saves them (and you) money because it's much more efficient for these large companies to install Windows once and then clone the drive.
Can I retrieve the product key from a non-booting Windows installation?
As long as both Windows versions are 2000, XP, 2003, or Vista, you can use the Load Hive function. You will have to slave the drive and point the Keyfinder to the non-booting Windows directory.
