Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder 2.0.10.10
Discover the product keys for more than 300 programs with this handy tool

Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is a simple tool for finding, displaying and saving the product keys for over 300 applications, which can be a real time-saver when you need to reinstall everything at some later date.

To use the program, just install and run it, and immediately you'll see the keys of any supported applications you might have installed. Which might be Windows, Adobe Acrobat, Call of Duty, Photoshop and more.

One notable problem here is that the supported list of applications is a little on the old side. Microsoft has just released the beta of Visual Studio 2012, for instance, but the Keyfinder only supports Visual Studio 2005 and 2008. It's much the same story elsewhere, and as a result the initial report on our test PC was a little disappointing, listing only 4 products. And one of those was incorrect (for some reason it thought we had Half Life installed.)

Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder does have a significant plus point, though, in that you can edit its configuration. If you click Tools > Modify Config then you'll see the default keys it's looking for, and if you know where to look in the Registry for a particular application's product key then you can quickly add it.

As an example, the program supported finding the key for VMware Workstation 5.0 with a line like this.

VMware Workstation 5.0|Serial=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Vmware, Inc.\Vmware Workstation\License.ws.5.0=Serial

That in itself is entirely useless, as our system had Workstation 8.0 installed. However, we were able to modify it to suit our 64-bit installation, like this.

VMware Workstation 8.0|Serial=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Vmware, Inc.\Vmware Workstation\License.ws.8.0.e1.201010=Serial

And as a result, our program now correctly finds and displays our Workstation key.

Please note, if this kind of manual tweaking seems like too much hassle then you can alternatively opt for the commercial Recover Keys application, which is more up-to-date and supports over 3,000 applications. Prices start from $24.95 and you can find out more at the Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder site.

Verdict:

The list of supported programs is seriously out of date, but if you're willing to do a little work then Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder can be tweaked to locate and display a reasonable number of product keys.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
