R.Hart, I'd say you're out of luck as I don't think it's possible to get the key number off of the CD. You could have gotten it prior to formatting by using a third party program but since you have formatted you're out of luck. If you can come up with a proof of purchase you may want to contact Microsoft and they may issue you a new key number but I wouldn't count on it.
I had to reformat my hard drive and re-install Windows 98 and it's asking me for my cd key number and I can't find it anywhere.Is there anyway to get it from the cd
so I can re-install Windows 98 again ? If you can help THANKS !!!!!!!
