Korgers:
I am looking after the Cd Key number placed in the XP sticker that is used for activation, ussually you need a 3rd party tool such as:

http://www.product-key.com/
http://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder.shtml

In wich best practice with Kix would be:
http://www.winkeyfinder.com
But it is still 3rd party.

Maybe someone have solved only using Kix.

Thanks.


note:
Win32_WindowsProductActivation ProductID brings only the OEM itself.

Jose,

Well I hope you're not up to something that might get you into trouble, that said... here are some links you may find valuable.

This site here has presented technical information on the method used.

Thanks for the tips DOC.
I´ll take a look at thos links .

I am not after something illegal, just wanna cross the information in the stickers with the ones already registered cause there have been some problems while activating XP´s in an untidy way, FE not sticking the number to the PC.

BTW jlo?
I was wondering if your KixBin can read and translate this value?
Code:
  
$ToKixBin=ReadValue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\", "DigitalProductId")


Its something like this:
a40000000300000035353639302d4f454d2d303035303133352d34323

Being able to do this from Kixtart during the login script would be very useful. We haven't been very diligent in keeping track of the Office 2003 activation code that is associated with the Office installation on a PC.

Being able to automate collecting this information with Kixtart help immensely when we have to reload PCs and therefor Office.

Has anything done anything like this with Kixtart?

I see the need towards pure admin soltion to prevent certain me$.$.$.$.up´s.......causing dangerous harm to owrselfs. je je je.

Althoght there is a Microsoft´s way of doing it, as DOC pointed above, we are in peace.

I found a program called ProduKey that will extract the Windows and Office activation codes to a text file via the command line. I am now calling this program from Kixtart to track our product keys.

My guess would be the one from the link above which is from the guys who helped MS come up with this scheme

Perhaps a link and further info from you would be nice.

k, for the key jose gave, this snippet should give you a cdKey:
Code:

$ToKixBin=ReadValue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\", "DigitalProductId")
for $=17 to 61 step 2
$cdKey = $cdKey + "" + chr(val("&"+substr($ToKixBin,$,2)))
next
$cdKey ?
get $

Tried your code, and it does produce the key that shows up on the General Tab in System Properties... but Jose was looking for the...

...Cd Key number placed in the XP sticker that is used for activation




The one he is looking for is a 25 character alpha-numeric code.

ja, realized that myself too...
and started searching for it in this value.
it's there.
screwing with the bytearray gives weirdly different values.
I even suspected, it could be base36()
but no, maybe base32.
anyways, not interested enough to go on with searching the correct "encryption" algorithm.

Would this be of any use?

Windows or Office Product Key Retrieval

or
Inside Windows Product Activation

The first link I provided is the Company that worked on it for Microsoft. Which is also referenced in your 2nd link Al. I'm sure that with the help of KiXbinary it could be done, but still a time consuming task to digest all the information and come up with solid working KiXtart code.

like said to jose, no, I don't see any reason there is need for kixBinary.
kixBinary is merely a provider, just like your readvalue(), it won't crack stuff for you.

hmm...
the delphi code looks ok otherwise but...
if I read it right, it gets the first 15 bytes of the dword value.
now, those 15 bytes don't hold the value.
instead, it seems (according to my cracks) that around the middle of the value is the needed data.
why this difference, I do not know.

or then I'm being fooled.
richie, oh thee byte guru, this looks like something you could have your say in...
dword, is it 8 bytes?

and then...
shl - shift left.
used in the code with: A shl 8
that means, from the integer a, shift some 8 bytes to left.
well, is there bytes in integer?
even the delphi basics knows to tell that shl shouldn't be used but with binary data

No. Fire up "calc" in advanced mode, switch to binary, select DWORD and subtract "1" - now count the "1"s.

No, that's 8 bits.

A simple way of doing an 8 bit shift left is to multiply the number by 256.

For example, 13=1101 in binary.

13 * 256 = 3328, which is 110100000000 in binary - you will see that the 1101 has been shifted 8 bits to the left.

Thanks very much for the support guys...specially Jooel the challenger man!!.

Myself I have worked out with ProduKey.exe to a txt as Vincent suggested.

I would be happy to help on the issue but I dont have much of a clue on it. Sorry.

couldn't get this working but...
it has a "base"
Code:

dim $binString, $binCode, $DecodedKey[24],$i,$j,$KeyChars,$Result

$KeyChars = 'B','C','D','F','G','H','J','K','M','P','Q','R','T','V','W','X','Y','2','3','4','6','7','8','9'
$binString=ucase(ReadValue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\", "DigitalProductId")) ;16 bytes
$binCode=""+baseconverter(left($binString,2),16,2)+baseconverter(substr($binString,3,2),16,2)+baseconverter(substr($binString,5,2),16,2)+baseconverter(substr($binString,7,2),16,2)

For $i=24 to 0
$A = 0
For $j=14 to 0 ;we want the first 15 bytes, right?
; $A = (A shl 8) + substr($binCode,$j,1) , not sure about this. shift left but should the resulting number have extra zeros added or not?
$A = $A*256 + baseconverter(substr($binCode,1+$j*8,8),2,10)
; $binCode=left($binCode,$j*8) + baseconverter($A/24,10,2) + substr($binCode,$j*8+9)
$A = $A mod 24
next
$DecodedKey[$i] = $KeyChars[$A]
next

For $i = 0 to 24
$Result = $Result + $DecodedKey[$i]
if (($i + 1) mod 5 = 0) and ($i < 24)
$Result = $Result + '-'
endif
next

$Result ?
"press any-key"
get $

Function BaseConverter($v,$f,$t)
dim $,$e,$y,$n,$x,$z
$=0
$t=$+$t
$f=$+$f
$e=($f>36)|($t>36)|($f<2)|($t<2)
$y=1.
for $n=len($v) to 1 step -1
$x=ASC(UCASE(substr($v,$n,1)))
$z=($x-48-($x>64)*7)
IF ($z<0)|(($x>57)&($x<65))|$e|($z>($f-1))
EXIT 1
ENDIF
$=$y*$z+$
$y=$y*$f
next
$n=""
While $
$x=INT($-(INT($/$t)*$t))
$=($-$x)/$t
$n=CHR($x+48+($x>9)*7)+$n
Loop
$BaseConverter=$n
Endfunction
