MSKeyViewer Plus

Softpedia-CleanAwardA program created to view program installation keys, service pack levels, and product IDs along with detecting many other non-licensed program versions.  Works for most versions of Microsoft Windows, Office, Exchange, SQL Server, Norton AntiVirus 2004-2007, and more!  A complete list of supported programs is included in the About window of the program.

 

You can download version 2.5.0 here.

 (Includes : Czech/Danish/Dutch/English/French/German/Greek/Hebrew/Hungarian/Italian/Korean/Romanian/Serbian/Spanish/Traditional Chinese/Turkish Translations)

 Fixes in version 2.5.0 :  Exporting keys to a CSV will now store the computer name in the file for easier recognition. Rewrote detection code to work on Windows Server 2008/2012.  Updated SQL Server key detections, removed older version detections for obsolete software.  Added version detection for Box, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Notepad++, Libre Office, and Cisco AnyConnect.

Fixes in version 2.3.5 :  Office 2013 (32/64) detection fix.  Support for Office 2010 SP2, AVG Free 2014, Microsoft Windows Defender for Windows 8.x, Adobe Flash Player (ActiveX and Plug-in installations).  Fix for Foxit PDF Reader detection.

Fixes in version 2.3.0 :  Office 2013 (32/64) detection fixes.  It seems that Microsoft has changed the key storage model for Office 2013 to resemble the same method as a volume license key with Windows 7/8.  MSKVP should be able to extract the last 5-digits of an installation key but not a full installation key as in the past.  Additional fixes : command-line fixes, GetRight key detection, KeePass, Acronis True Image (version only), VLC Media Player, Dropbox, Cisco IP Communicator, Cisco Jabber, and Juniper Networks Junos Pulse version detection.

FOR A COMPLETE LIST OF SUPPORTED PRODUCTS DETECTED BY MSKEYVIEWER PLUS, PLEASE SEE THE ‘ABOUT’ SECTION FOR THE LISTS.

 

To use the full functionality, please unzip all contents to the same directory.  If you only want the English translation and no options, you can use the MSKeyViewerPlus.exe file to run on its own.

NOTE: The .mlf files included are standard text files which can be opened using a text editor such as Notepad.  If you would like to add a translation for your native language, simply copy the English.mlf file to something else (ie. Espanol.mlf), translate the text to the right of every ‘=’ symbol, and save the file.  Also, please add your name and email address at the top of the file if you would like credit for it in the About window.  Once complete, restart the key viewer and your language should appear in the Options list.  Please make sure that your language file is located in the same directory as the other language files.

If you have developed a language file for this utility, please send it to me at ‘t k s h e r r e r @ i n a m e . c o m’ so that it can be included in future releases and others can benefit from the work!

Remote Registry Access Notes

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS FUNCTIONALITY SHOULD WORK FOR REMOTE 32-BIT SYSTEMS, BUT WILL NOT FUNCTION FOR REMOTE 64-BIT SYSTEMS DUE TO ARCHITECTURE CHANGES.  THIS IS BEING LOOKED AT.

  • You must be connected to a remote machine with Administrator access to gather information from the registry.
  • Remote registry access uses NetBIOS network traffic which may be blocked by local or network firewalls.
  • For a Windows XP Workstation that is not joined to a domain, you must turn off ‘Simple File Sharing’.
  • Windows Vista may not have the ‘Remote Registry’ service started by default. This service must be running.
  • MSKVP is limited to gathering information only from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE at this time for remote access. Programs that store data in HKEY_CURRENT_USERS will not be shown in MSKVP when connecting to a remote registry. These programs include: Eudora, Second Copy 7, Opera, PC Tools Anti-Virus, TrueCrypt, and possibly Spybot Search & Destroy
