Mac Product Key Finder - recover lost serial numbers of your Mac apps
Mac Product Key Finder is freeware program for recovering lost product keys (or making backup before it is too late) for software installed on your Mac. This small tool will scan your Mac for installed applications and show your product keys (serial numbers). You can save this list to a file (HTML, XML, CSV, PDF and text file) or print it. Currently, list of supported software is quite small (only 69 programs now, including Microsoft Office 2008, Adobe Photoshop CS3-CS5, Parallel's Desktop, Panic applications, etc.)
If you need something more powerful, try Mac Product Key Finder Pro version, as it supports much more programs and features, but is not free. Below, you can see comparison table of features between freeware and Pro versions.
NOTE: Microsoft Office 2011 is NOT supported by Free or Pro versions, and no, we cannot add it, since it's encrypted, even though we know where it's stored. Only Office 2008 and beta version of 2011 are supported.
NOTE 2: Apperture, Final Cut, Logic Studio and Roxio Toast Titanium are NOT supported by Free or Pro versions as well. These keys are also encrypted.
NOTE 3: Both Free and Pro versions will not work on apps you purchased through Mac AppStore, since they simply come without serial numbers. After you purchase app through AppStore, full version will be downloaded to your computer. It actually might work for some apps, but not for the majority of them.
