Some tutorials recommend checking Office 2016 product key in Registry. But if you did that step by step, you would see product key files in binary format. Unfortunately, you can not read it directly. So you'd better try other methods. Speaking of VBS methods, as we test, we can not find its full code to correctly get a 25-character key. So we do not suggest it.
