My neighbour's have asked me to transfer a program from one of their computers, to the other. The particular software is 'Cashflow Manager 7'
I have transferred all the files used by the program onto a USB, but running the software on my computer (when testing) results in the product trial being initiated, because I don't have the product key (which, unsurprisingly, neither do they).
I've run three different 'Product Key finders' which are supposed to extract product keys from the registry, but none of them found the key (in fact, all of them only found the OS product key. This could be related to the hard drive in this computer failing, which is why the software need be transferred).
I also found some registry files related to Cashflow7, but they weren't the product key, since copying the files and adding them to my own registry did not yield an unlocked version.
What else can I try?
Is there a way to get the key, or will they have to buy another copy (which make my efforts utterly futile)?
How feasible is backing up the entire registry?
Is there a general location for product keys in the registry, which I could save the entirety of?
