    Home Essentials 98

    A friend reformatted his hard drive and was reloading his programs but when he tried to install Home Essentials 98, it asked for a product code and he can not find his authenticity certificate. Is there anywhere that we can find his product code. He is not trying to do anything illegal - the disks came with his computer. He just needs the code to reinstall the program.

    If he registered the product, the company that makes it MAY be able to help. Other than that, I think he is up the creek without a paddle.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Re: Home Essentials 98

    I have a copy of Home Essentials 98. It has a product key just like most other Microsoft products. It has Word, Works, Money and a few other MS products. As Dave said, your only hope MIGHT be to contact MS and beg for mercy! They might also ask you to look at the inner ring of the first CD and look for a product code (not a product key) that the CD has imprinted there. If you happen to talk to the right support person there. MAYBE!!!

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
