I'm working on a client's PC that has MS Office Home and Student installed. The unusual thing is that there is no winword.exe or the like for the applications. The shortcuts point to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\Virtualization Handler\CVH.EXE" "Microsoft Outlook 2010 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" where xxx is a 16 digit number.
I've learned that this is called a 'click2run' install or something.
Fair enough, but my issue is that I usually use 'Belarc Advisor' or 'Recover My Keys' (if the system won't boot) to to retrieve the product key in use for Windows and Office. But neither programs find anything for this computer's office install.
I'm assuming it's a genuine version because it's Home and Student. Who goes to the trouble of installing a pirated office to only use the base version...?
How can I find the product key used with this install so I can use it for an install from the Office 2010 OEM media I have?
