    product key lost

    Hi, I have a windows 2000 CD that someone took out of its case and put into a CD box along with all the rest of the cd's. They did not think that the product code was on that case. I know how to find the product key once it is installed on a computer, but is there a way to find the product key by just the CD?
    Thanks for any help

    Re: product key lost

    The product key is not stored on the CD. If you contact Microsoft and explain the circumstances they may give you a new product key.
