You 'bought' a product key finder? With freebies all over the place that was kinda dumb. Magical jelly bean is a favorite:

It should still be free. Otherwise here's a generic google search that will turn up a lot more:

We can't be sure why whatever you bought doesn't run. Was the OS on the desktop also XP?

Edit It looks like the current version of magical jelly bean will work but just in case here's link to an older version I have on my XP machine that will pull up the product key:

www.downloadtaxi.com/d/1209929195/keyfinder_2_0_1.zip

Copy and paste for a direct download. (For some reason when the above is configured as a hyperlink computing.net adds script that takes you instead to the downloadtaxi page that has a lot of confusing junk on it.)

Well you're on the internet now so just download either the new or older magical jelly bean key finder programs I linked to above on the computer you're using now. Choose to 'save' the download and not run it directly from the download site. Then copy the download to a floppy disk (if your non-internet computer has a floppy drive) or burn to a cd and then copy the file to the non-internet computer.

The older version I think will be easier. It's a zip file so unzip it with whatever utility you use for that and run the exe file. That's all you have to do.

Yeah, use the older version. The link to the newer version on the magical jelly bean site looks to be an installer program which may not work if you plan on using it on a non-internet computer.

Well whatever you're using right now is what you download the file with. Then put the downloaded file on something the desktop can use--floppy disk, cd or flash drive.

Copy the downloaded file to the desktop and if it's got at least XP on it, clicking on the file should open XP's utility do extract zip files. Pay attention to where the unzipped files are placed. Better yet, specify it goes to something like c:\jellybean then you can find it afterwards. There's only 3 files in the extracted download. The file to run in those 3 is KEYFINDER.EXE.

If you forget where the file is just run a file search for keyfinder.exe.
