Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You have a product key that is used by a Microsoft product. Since the software is asking you for the license key, that means the software initially installed correctly so I am assuming you are running Microsoft Windows.

The loss of a key can result from moving or duplicating a hard drive or moving a system.

Click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Windows Activation. This should allow you to perform the activation steps.

    Software/Hardware used Software - What computer program or operating system has asked you for your key? Your license key is a code (often a long string of numbers and letters) entered into the computer that verifies you actually paid for the software. Hardware used - Are you running a Mac or a Windows machine? Is this a specialty device like a Windows cell phone, a network router, a printer, or whatever. This information helps us provide answers by providing context. We wouldn't want to give troubleshooting tips for a broken start button if you mean the button that starts up your computer (power button) and we think you mean the Windows Start button.
