    Product key finder for Publisher 2000

    We have a number of PCs on which lives Publisher 2000 SP3, for which I am trying to find the Product Activation Key / Licence number(s).

    Neither Belarc Advisor nor NirSoft's ProduKey will extract it.

    Does anyone know if it is possible?

    Thanks

    Hi John

    These people offer a free trial offer for unlocking / key activation for MS products

    Hope this helps

    Sadly the website talks only of Office XP and 2003, both of which are handled <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> by Belarc Advisor and ProduKey!

    John,
    Have you tried using the Office key code?
    Some versions of Office contained Publisher and do NOT have a separate key code for Publisher.

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

    Look in Help | About for Publisher.
    If the Product Id is th same as for Word, then it is likey using the same key as Office.

    Sadly, no. Publisher 2000 has been put on before (or maybe even after) Office XP Pro, which has all the programs bar Publisher.

    Sounds familiar.

    Any chancethat Publisher wasinstalled by an Office Small Business Edition, and then Office XP was added?
    If so, you need the cereal number for the SBE.
