hey, I was wondering if i could get my cd-key somehow from my halo CE game. Yesterday evening i was trying to re-install my halo pc. I have the disk, but not the box. Now, don't think that i'm trying to get a cd-key for my 'illegal download Halo pc'. No, i have a legal halo PC game, but i just lost my case and cdkey, but i have Halo CE installed with my legit cdkey. so would there ba a way that i can extract/read/copy my CDkey from my CE game? Ty anyway :-)
I didn't make it!
Yup, open regedit (run -> regedit.exe) navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\" then copy the value for DigitalProductID. I'll leave converting the string to you; hope your hex is up to date. ;)
