    I lost a key of a netbook with Windows 8.1 on it, so I was looking for a script to recover it. (Lazy me.)
    Anyhow, on my netbook with Windows 8.1 the 'Save' function doesn't work.

    If someone with rep would like to edit the script:

    If vbYes = MsgBox(Product & vbNewLine & vbNewLine & vbNewLine & vbNewLine & "Save to a file?", vbYesNo + vbInformation, "ShowKey: Windows Product Key Information") then
    Save Product
    End if


    needs to be

    If vbYes = MsgBox(Product & vbNewLine & vbNewLine & vbNewLine & vbNewLine & "Save to a file?", vbYesNo + vbInformation, "ShowKey: Windows Product Key Information") then
    Save(Product)
    End if


    This way a 'Windows Key.txt' file will be created in the folder from where you opened/executed the .vbs-script.
    Or at least it did for me.

    Kind regards

    Thanx for picking that up - the legacy code I inherited was rather "Loosely Typed" - anyway we have moved on to a compiled version - see tenforums. - I hope David approves...
