How do I find my old License Key?

I am trying to track down one of our old license keys for Crystal reports desktop designer V8.5.

We are running software which uses crystal reports to print out transmittals.

Due to a change in the company, the logo's on the reports need replacing. The only version of Crystal reports designer which is compatible is V8.5, which I have but the License for it was lost before I started working at this company.

Would there be a database where the keys are kept?

    Hi,

    I also have this problem.

    In the past I log into the Login-URL "https://secure.businessobjects.com/login/login.asp?prepare=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.businessobjects.com%2Fregister%2Fcontent.asp" and than I found the "Registrations" under "My Profile".

    This should also be working today (see "http://www.businessobjects.com/register/FAQ.asp?language=EN#1") but it doesn't!

    SAP is still working on it (since about 1,5 months ago)!

    Hi Ryan,

    You can get license key from

    -Click on Help -> About Crystal Reports..

    -Try to find from Registry Editor:

    Click on Run->Type regedit ->

    Expand Software folder->Crystal Decisions-> search for Keycodes

    you can also try to log a incident for keycode:

    For a new key:

    Request key codes for new orders via SAP Marketplace (SMP), will receive a download letter on new purchases providing them with their SMP login credentials. Using these credentials you can login and click in the "Keys & Requests" tab > Request a License key.

    If your Key code does not work

    You need create a customer message https://websmp107.sap-ag.de/message using component XX-SER-LIKEY-BOJ.

    Regards,

    Shweta

    We currently do not have the software installed. So I am not able to retrieve the key via Registry or through Help>About.

    Users can print crystal reports as we copy crystal reporting files into users profiles.

    There is no instance of Crystal reporting installed on any server.

    Thanks for that.

    Is that a US number?
