    If you're looking for a program that retrieves WinXP product keys, try Magical Jellybean. I talk about it in all of my books.

    If you want to know how to write a program to retrieve the WinXP key, that's considerably more difficult. It looks like Vic Ferri has figured out how to do it. See http://personal-computer-tutor.com/abc/vic_ferri.htm

    There's lots of good advice about retrieving keys at http://michaelstevenstech.com/ViewKeyXP.htm
