Scheduled tasks

You can create scheduled tasks for Recover Keys to run itself when you want and save your product keys into database or a folder. You can add scheduled tasks in the Options dialog => "Scheduled tasks" tab. (Available in Enterprise version only).

Basic Operating System info is fetched

Such as Windows install date, default browser and mail client, if Windows is genuine, last boot and shutdown time and many more. (Turned off by default, you can turn it on in Options dialog).

Operating system info

Generic Windows and Office product keys detection

Recover Keys can detect if generic product keys have be used during activation of Windows or Office.

For instance, if you upgraded to Windows 10 on your PC by taking advantage of the free upgrade offer and successfully activated Windows 10 on your PC in the past, you won't have a valid Windows 10 product key, and you can skip the product key page by selecting the Skip button. Your PC will activate online automatically so long as the same edition of Windows 10 was successfully activated on this PC by using the free Windows 10 upgrade offer.

Partial product keys

Some software applications store only partial product keys instead of full product keys in the system. Partial product keys still can be useful if you want to find full product key in your email or to contact software manufacturer's support.

Partial product keys

License expiration info detection

Some software licenses may have expiration dates (i.e. Windows, Office, VIPRE, etc.). Recover Keys will now detect and show it.

Better "Deep scan" filtering

Improved deep scan data filtering, deep scan now filters out more unrelated to product keys data.

Improvements to "Another Windows OS scan"

Will also scan files for license information, not just Registry.

CMD/CLI improvements

Added new command-line options, mainly to support new "product key databases" feature. Please refer to this article for more information: Command-line version usage

UI re-design

We've re-designed user-interface of Recover Keys to a more modern, clean and simple to use interface.
