Find license keys for Office 2010 and Office 2013

Find license keys for Office 2010 and Office 2013 via a script

Magic Jelly Bean Keyfinder is not available for Office 2013 suites and applications. However, Office 2010 and Office 2013 already include a vbs script that will display the last 5 characters of the product key. Note that these five characters are sufficient to understand that the product key you are using is very secure (because you should already store your other product key codes securely with other license information elsewhere).

You can run the vbs-file in the following way;

  1. Open a command prompt. For instance via:
    • Start-> All Programs-> Accessories-> Command Prompt
    • Windows XP
      Start-> Run: cmd
    • Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8
      Start-> type: cmd
  2. In the command prompt, type the following:
    • Office 2010 (32-bit) on a 32-bit version of Windows
      cscript "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\OSPP.VBS" /dstatus
    • Office 2010 (32-bit) on a 64-bit version of Windows
      cscript "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\OSPP.VBS" /dstatus
    • Office 2010 (64-bit) on a 64-bit version of Windows
      cscript "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\OSPP.VBS" /dstatus
    • Office 2013 (32-bit) on a 32-bit version of Windows
      cscript "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\OSPP.VBS" /dstatus
    • Office 2013 (32-bit) on a 64-bit version of Windows
      cscript "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\OSPP.VBS" /dstatus
    • Office 2013 (64-bit) on a 64-bit version of Windows
      cscript "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\OSPP.VBS" /dstatus
  3. You should now get a screen with some license details such as the license name, type and the last 5 characters of the Product Key.
