Iain Posted September 29, 2006 Share Posted September 29, 2006 I came across some C++ code which builds an extractor for the XP CD Key (it also works on Windows 2000). I use Visual C++ Express Edition (and occasionally Dev-C++) and tried to compile it but it generated a load of errors. In addition to the .cpp file, there were .dsp and .dsw files (otherwise they had the same name as the .cpp file). Is it likely that I could compile it with the compilers that I have, or would I need another compiler? The reason that I'm asking here is because it might be a nice addition to a USB key and, in general, I like to know what's happening in the apps that I use (hence I like to build the .exe myself). If I can't get this to compile, I suspect that I'd have to rely on something else to get the CD Key. I've heard of RockXP but have no experience of this. What are the feelings of this community about other software to get the key from the registry? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
