    I often deal with machines that have OEM windows keys in the MSDM segment in the BIOS, I can certainly see the key with RWEverything or other tools, but I have never been able to determine whether it is Pro or Home, or even if it is 8, 8,1 or 10.

    Does anyone have any ideas or answers?

    Thank you in advance.

    That doesn't seem to work at all with a windows 10 key

    The OEM Query tool will tell you for which edition of windows it is, Vista/7 (when slic2.x table is found), 8.x/10 (when msdm/oem:Dm key is found). Saidly it cannot tell which version of Vista, 7, 8.x or 10 it is. The OEM Query tool you can find here, klik on the pastebin link.

    You just need to feed it the Win10 pkeyconfig.xrm-ms file.

    I been playing with this for an hour..How in the hell does it work? I try to input a serial to look up and nothing will type in the box for key nor can you copy/paste in the big box either? How do you check a serial with this?

    Dunno.. many are using it without issue. Maybe it's just not for you.

    PidKey that Mr.X post, copy the key and just left click the box where you would enter a key and it will insert it for you. click GO and it will run through and figure out what Os its for. No choosing anything, just let it run.

    I am a person like anyone else. And just because you say I am a nobody at MDL which is a bad wording btw cause I am not an expert or knowledgeable person, that's a difference.
    You should think twice before say stupidities about Russian software. That makes you an arrogant ignorant.

    Pretty much uncalled for really.

    Ever try DLing Daz loader from the thread? Same thing

    I dont know of another key program that will let you enter a key and it will figure it out for you without your interaction. If there is great, otherwise its what I use for that purpose.

    Huh? Have you even tried the Check Product key function in ShowKeyPlus?

    If there is a problem with it let me know so that I can fix it - perhaps new build whatever has changed stuff...

    EDIT: In fact just stick with what you have... I'm done with this forum.
