I wanted to check on my windows product key and I used the well known 02 methods:
- wmic path SoftwareLicensingService get OA3xOriginalProductKey
- powershell "(Get-WmiObject -query ‘select * from SoftwareLicensingService’).OA3xOriginalProductKey"
However, the commands aren't retrieving any product key and no error messages are being shown.
Background: I have the product key printed on the CD and from the Activation settings, I can see that the product is activated. Re-entering the same product key is not an issue and reaffirms to me that the product is activated. However, when I try to check on the product key in CMD or PowerShell, i am getting nothing (screenshot).
Is there something wrong with how I am approaching this? Why cant I see the product key in this machine while I can able to do so in my other machine?
