    I have never seen showkeyplus get it wrong since I started using it.

    Use produkey as a cross check.

    Cnet gives only Installed Key code , which did not match with ShowKeyPlus result. Please download at - (Microsoft Windows Product Key Viewer - Free download and software reviews - CNET Download.com ) and crosscheck yourself . Thanks .

    That thing from Cnet is way off on mine. I know both my keys, and showkey shows my regular 8.1 Pro key and the media center key I'm using now.

    I wouldn't trust that tool from Cnet myself, I think it just made one up if you ask me.

    People here do not need to crosscheck - we know the answer!

    To convince youself, do a crosscheck with well known keyfinders eg as I said earlier using produkey, magical jellybean finder, belarc etc and they will give same answers as Showkeyplus.

    Not even remotely close to my key. I have all my keys well documented. I have no idea where it pulled this key from.

    The key the CNET key finder shows for me is TY4CG-JDJH7-VJ2WF-DY4X9-HCFC6 which looks to be a Windows 10 (Home) generic key. It's not the generic key you get with the digital entitlement though. And I'm running Pro anyway. Not much of a key finder. I think somebodies coding skills are lacking. I wouldn't trust it. Just deleted it actually.

    Hmmm... seems I'm a bit late to the party...so, nothing to see here then?
    @alphanumeric, that's is strange - even if they did use the wrong algorithm, they should not get a key for the wrong edition...really weired.

    Don't matter, as yours does exactly what we want, and WORKS VERY WELL, and looks like most of us agree.

    I'm not even sure its a Windows 10 key? This PC doesn't have an embedded key and I clean installed with a digital entitlement. I did use a PID.txt file with the generic Pro key though to force a Pro install. Even so the key the CNeT utility gave back wasn't even close to any key I have on record. showkey is what I recommend on any forum I'm a member of. Anyway, we now return you to our regularly scheduled programing.
