Retrieve Office MAK Volume License Key

Posted 28 January 2013 - 06:17 AM

Hello!

I am trying to retrieve the Office key from the registry. However, using VB.Net's native code and retrieving the "DigitalProductID" from the registry and decrypting it does not seem to work for all versions of Office. It will work for 2003 and 2007 but for like Office 2010 Pro Plus MAK keys it retrieves a bogus key. Any ideas? Did Microsoft start storing the key in a different manner? Is the encryption algorithm different for different versions of keys or versions of Office now? Thanks in advance for any help!

Why do you need to do this?
It sounds like someone trying to get the key from their Employer's volume license on a work PC - probably to use it at home.

Closing for obvious reasons. This sounds fishy.
