  • Brendan Hickey,

    ALL XP Media Center licenses are OEM licenses, which means that the Product Key (PK) should be printed on the Certificate of Authenticity affixed to the case of the computer.

    Have a look all over the computer case (if a laptop, look on the bottom) for the CoA sticker and the PK is on that sticker.
