Magical Jellybean Keyfinder Portable 2.0.1 Development Test 5 *OUTDATED*

New topic HERE

Name: Keyfinder
Category: Utilities
Description: The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is a utility that retrieves your Product Key (cd key) used to install windows from your registry. It has the options to copy the key to clipboard, save it to a text file, or print it for safekeeping. It works on Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP, Server 2003, Windows Vista, Office XP, Office 2003, and Office 2007. Keyfinder became open source under GPL on March 26th. ZachHudock's modded version of keyfinder has been used for Development test 5.

From ZachHudock:This modification to the Keyfinder base application now saves the registry settings in HKCU instead of HKLM. It also adds a .manifest file so the app can use styled buttons to match the current Windows theme, instead of being stuck in Win2000 style. Full source code is included.
The source is also included in Keyfinder portable.

Release Notes:

Development Test 5

  • The font registry settings are now in the launcher
  • For those that prefer the original (non modded) version of Keyfinder, Development Test 4 is avlailable Here

Things to do:

  • fix issues with saving font settings

I know how to fix it...the

I know how to fix it...the thought just currently left my mind. I'll post back in 5 minutes after I look at your source again.

Edit:

Change your CheckRunning: section to this

	CheckRunning:
		Sleep 1000
		FindProcDLL::FindProc "${DEFAULTEXE}"                  
		StrCmp $R0 "1" CheckRunning
		Goto TheEnd

I can make a new Icon for you as well. Expect it ready some time this weekend, possibly later tonight.

Edit2: I'll test the PAF-conformedness this evening as well and report back on that.

  • You should be copying the .cfg file back and forth to Data\settings.
  • You're missing a help.html file. Copy a generic one from something like Jooleem.
  • If you don't need that .cfg file by default, remove it, but if it is needed, keep it in App\DefaultData\settings and have it copied to Data\settings on first run if it doesn't exist (most of the launchers do this).
  • In appinfo.ini, change the Publisher to Magical Jellybean Software & PortableApps.com
  • Change the website to PortableApps.com/DevelopmentTest (or /Keyfinder)
  • The Start line in appinfo.ini should be KeyfinderPortable.exe.
  • Using something like IcoFX, open the original program exe and make the icon only have 48, 32 and 16 bit sizes in both 256 and 8 bit formats.
  • Add Other\Source\AppSource.txt from another app. (Task Coach, say)
  • Put the Readme back in Other\Source.

  • Put the INI back in Other\Source....
  • Change your copyright in the source to be:

    Copyright (C) 2008 Brian All

    Below Johns, and put a space between that and the website which needs to be changed as I said for the AppInfo.ini.

  • The VER variable is for the launcher, not the app, which is at like 1.5.7.0 ish.
  • In the CompanyName, removed (Your Name).
  • Change the LegalCopyright to PortableApps.com & Contributers.
  • Change the 100 on line 168 (splash line) to 0.
  • Remove the appicon.ico from Other\Source and change the line in the source back to the line for the MUI_ICON.
  • That's all I found. Get those updated and it should be almost perfect. Nicely done.

I am using the 2.0 beta 5 version as a base app, the old 1.5 version is not OSS.

Thanks Zach

I was going to add the Keyfinder source code, but It appears that Magical Jelly Bean hasn't released it for download yet.

PS- I dropped a note for you on the test release page, you can add this there whenever you get a chance.

Don't Modify App Source

Don't ever modify the base application source, it should almost never be needed. That way it's easier to provide updates, and it's the same as a local install. The launcher can handle most everything you need.

Anyway, Brian, although it's small, you can just host the source on my server and we'll host it on PortableApps.com when it's released.

the .cfg file is needed to add the ability to retrieve additional software keys from software other than Microsoft.
I don't think it is mandatory, but it is a useful addition.

Keyword: If

The keyword is IF. Some apps create there settings file automaticially. So, if it does create that file each time run, you don't need to keep it in App\DefaultData\settings, if it doesn't you will have to copy it from there on first run, and then copy it back and forth from the ProgramDirectory to the SettingsDirectory.

I saw that shortly after. So Brian, I apologize, extensions are decieving. If there's updates made to that file regularely, then copy it to data. If not, keeping it in the program directory is fine.

Edit: After a look, I see users can modify the file from the program, so it's best to copy it back and forth.

and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,

I found that if you change the display fonts for the app, it does leave a registry key behind in

Dev Test 2 is missing the

Dev Test 2 is missing the .cfg file.

Your KeyfinderPortable.ini should look like this:

[KeyfinderPortable]
KeyfinderDirectory=App\Keyfinder
SettingsDirectory=Data\settings
KeyfinderExecutable=keyfinder.exe
AdditionalParameters=
DisableSplashScreen=false

# The above options are explained in the included readme.txt
# This INI file is an example only and is not used unless it is placed as described in the included readme.txt

it looks like you used the ini from FirefoxPortable for that...

You used a somewhat non-standard way of moving the file. I made the necessary changes to the launcher for the file move stuff, and will post an updated .nsi file shortly. This is still your project, and i don't expect to be mentioned in the source, i just wanted to set it up so its similar to all the other launchers out there.

Hmmm...

I'm not so sure about this one. While I can understand running this on your own PC to recover your own key... I can't really think of a legitimate reason for having this portable. I can think of illegitimate ones, though.

In which case, you could install it locally since you don't care about the Windows install you're about to overwrite with a reinstall.

it also shows other keys like office, so you wouldn't necessarily restore windows after. it's just a handy tool that you don't have to install (not that you had to install the original version anyways). plus it just shows a key; it's not like he released ophcrack portable or anything.

I knew there was going to be debate on this when I posted it...
It is basically portable already, only an exe and cfg file. It does leave some stuff in the registry, as Zach mentioned above, and I thought I would make it paf compliant.
It is quite a popular and useful app. John is right about possible illigitmate usage, but keep in mind the sole, legitimate purpose of the program: to find a product key that has been lost, or for IT administration, etc. If you went around to peoples houses to repair their windows installation for them, or if you have multiple PCs at your house, this would be a useful tool.

Did you say you changed the base app's source to alter where it stores the registry settings? It would be great if I could get this for the launcher, it would make things simpler. I was having some trouble with the launcher script, but I seem to have got it, and I'm almost finished.

I did modify the base app's source to alter where the reg settings are saved. I don't have enough delphi knowledge to get it to store them in an ini or anything, but i was able to get it to save to HKCU instead of HKLM, so you won't have to worry about admin access then. I'll send the files along later tonight when I'm on my own PC.

No Small Increments

This is a general note to everyone posting development tests. Just move development tests up in numerical order, there's no reason to put a version number (2.1) as it makes it more confusing, and it's a 'Test', so there's no reason to have test and a tenth as it's read. Blum

Altered version of base app

Zach, f you can please post your altered version of Keyfinder here, I will use it in the next release, as it is somewhat easier to deal with HKCU than HKLM. I tried adding the key in HKLM to the launcher, but I kept getting errors and could not get the compiler to finish. I'll start form scratch for Dev test 4. I had to remove the cfg settings part of the launcher because it was causing errors too. I will try to fix this problem before the end of the week.
Any other recommendations would be great.

Keyfinder modded

This modification to the Keyfinder base application now saves the registry settings in HKCU instead of HKLM. It also adds a .manifest file so the app can use styled buttons to match the current Windows theme, instead of being stuck in Win2000 style. Full source code is included.

/App/AppInfo has a Thumbs.db file left behind

Using a non-standard way to check for /Data/settings and move settings files around. Here is a corrected version of the launcher for handling keyfinder.cfg (it does not add the registry support, but if you need help with that, just ask)

I posted my modified version of Keyfinder (changes location in registry) here

Development Test 4 Released

This version will copy the cfg file to Data\Settings after close on first run. I'm looking at the modded version now.

Looks good now, thanks for updating the nsi file Smile

Hopefully my modded version will come in handy for you making this portable.

Thanks for it..

I don't know delphi at all Pardon , so do you think you could clue me in to exactly what you did so I could do it myself for future updates? Can I use Notepad++ for it?

You would need a delphi

You would need a delphi compiler to recompile the source. The base app is no longer being developed (the author said he no longer had time to maintain it, so he'd make it OSS), but as I keep playing around with it, I'll upload my changes to the SourceForge project if I can, then you wouldn't have to worry about making the change each time.

I don't really know delphi either though, I found that change by accident, but after I figured that out, it got me interested, so i'm gonna try learning, and hopefully improve the app.

Okay

That's great. Your modded version looks great, maybe we can continue to maintain this app. I'd still like to take a look at the code anyway; I'm googleing for a compiler now.

Delphi 7, free license...

You can get a free license for Delphi 7 from Codegear:

They no longer offer the software for download, but you can get it from a mirror.

Development Test 5 Source Code:

Okay, I've been working on this on and off for a bit and it seems like I've got the registry stuff almost worked out. This launcher code is intended for ZachHurdock's Modded version of Keyfinder (not the original)
However, the app's font settings are not reloading once the app is restarted. (ex. I change the font to Arial, then close, then open, and the font is courier again.) Anyone know what's wrong here? Pardon :

Section "Main"

Here is the full .nsi file. Once this is fixed I will post the updated version. I think I'll also add the HKLM stuff into the launcher for the original app and post that too, just to finalize it.
BTW, anyone find anything else left behind?

Change all of

Change all of HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1957994488-1364589140-839522115-1003 to HKEY_CURRENT_USER the first is unique to your user ID on your PC, and is identical to HKCU

Also, Keyfinder updated to 2.0.1 final. I'll get the source for that and change the registry key again, and upload that.

Edit: Here it is.

I've finally got around to trying th is, and it works well in vista ultimate sp1.

I haven't checked the registry at all, but I couldn't see anything obvious on the hard drive

all settings in registry

I think this app saves all it's settings in the registry, so use something like regshot to find them. Thanks.

5:00PM CENTRAL TIME

I will be releasing an updated version of the .cfg files. I am calling for everyone to find any product keys in their registry to write it route down and post it on the MJB forum. The link is below. I will take up as many as possible. I have more than 10 new serials to update. Thanks and happy searching!!!

Updated CFG

Added Product ID to tell whether OEM to Windows Information
and the following Programs and Games:

Dreamweaver MX
Flash MX
Contribute MX
Fireworkd MX
Freehand MX
VMware 6.0 Workstation with Ace
Sony Vegas Platinum 8.0
Command and Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars Kane's Wrath Expansion
Swiftdog GameHike
Swiftdog GameThrust

Also Included is a Vista Version. The reason for the vista version is their is a line of code that messes up whenever key finder is run on vista. So i deleted that line and it now works better on vista.

http://rapidshare.com/files/111377518/Keyfinder_XP_Vista.rar.html

P.S. Sorry its on rapidshare. If anyone else can add me to their account, it would be awesome.

Thanks!

Thanks stephen, I have a few things to ask:

  1. A: Can you show me the line of code that needs to be deleted? or,
    B: Delete that line on This modification of keyfinder. This mod, done by Zach, saves the font settings in HKCU instead of HKLM, so a user on an account with lowered priveledges can still write/save the reg settings with the launcher. The icon was also updated. Source is included. I don't know if it it is in this version of the mod, but a .manifest file was also added so it can take on the current theme of the OS rather than be stuck in the Win2k style.
  2. Also, rather than using rapidshare, next time just email the file to me at my address, which can be found on my user page Here. Then I can upload the file to my hosting and give you the link. It makes it easier. Wink
  3. Thanks for all your work, I'll use this in the next test.

the line is

=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion=CSDVersion

Vista hates that line.... so, you will have to erase it and make a vista version

Is it necessary?

What is the exact function of this line, because if it has no extremely important function, why have two separate versions when the "vista" version works fine on XP too?
I've been looking around, and it seems that \CurrentVersion=CSDVersion is replaced on vista as \CurrentVersion=CSDBuildNumber. So yes, it does appear that two separate versions might be necessary, but rather than completely remove that line that points to a non-existent reg value, it should probably be replaced with the proper value. Here, check this out. Here is the screenshot. Just google that registry value for more info.
Anyone have Vista SP1 so I can confirm this? It would be a help.
