Finding Your Product Key in
Your Software

What is a Product Key

Every purchase of software comes with its own unique product key consisting of an alphanumeric code that is required during installation. A product key comes after you buy software. The product key is a unique combination of numbers and letters that is required during software installation. It is unique in the sense that it only pertains to the software you have bought. It is very unlikely that you can use it for a similar software application.

Without the product key, you will not have access to the program; at times, it will only run as a trial version. Some PC users use the same product key from another user, but this can only be used by a limited number of slots, and they could not be used at the same time as well. This practice has been carried over time to save money, thereby infringing the right of software manufacturers and their customers. This illegal software that comes out of the market is supposed to be protected by copyright laws. This is why software manufacturers require product keys during installation as a way to curb such unlawful practice. The product key is a distinct identifier which consists of a string of letters and/or numbers that prevents unauthorized copying and installation of the product.

The Usual Places in Finding the Product Key

A product key is usually found in the installation folder along with the installation media like a USB key, download folder, DVD, etc. The designated file name for the product on the setup.exe file can be found by looking into the folder. It can be verified by looking into the product name. Once found, a common way of associating it with the product to be installed is to type in the serial number or alphanumeric code (of 25 characters) to allow installation and the user’s eligibility for product support. Thus, it is always required for users to know where to find it and how to access it.

Some other product keys can be found on a sticker which is found inside the case of a CD or DVD or some at the back of the case. In some other cases, such as when a PC is preloaded with the Microsoft Windows software, the product key sticker is found on the PC case. Or it can also be found on the installation disc that comes with the computer. Some products have a digital entitlement especially when you upgrade your PC. It is also provided to you if you have purchased or have paid for it on Windows Store.
