    Belarc Advisor will tell you your product keys, including the original one and the Media Center key.

    If the product key is stored in the BIOS, you can use RWEverything to retrieve it, as described HERE.

    Has anyone been able to get Belarc to run fully with Windows 8? I tried it twice and each time it does the scan to 100% but then I see nothing and the app terminates.

    If one has WMC and the key changed and overwrote the original Windows 8 Pro key does that mean that you have two legal licenses? One for Windows 8 Pro without WMC and one with?
