BeLarc Advisor (download)

So I wanted to find the key for the version of Windows 7 I have running on one partition, and, I couldn’t find the damned thing using regedit. Belarc Advisor is a handy little program that will find keys for your operating system (and other software keys) and profile your system, generally. It’s freeware but, as of 2020 (and possibly earlier) the outfit that produces the damned thing wants your email address to send you a link for download – no way, Jackson Brown. You need my freaking email address, for what??? Anyway: from the company, about the product:

The Belarc Advisor builds a detailed profile of your installed software and hardware, network inventory, any missing Microsoft hotfixes, anti-virus status, security benchmarks, and displays the results in your Web browser.

All of your PC profile information is kept private on your PC and is not sent to any web server.


You can go here….there are three versions, the latest being version nine (as of August 2020 the newest version is 9.6): Downloads
