Extract Product Key from Surface RT

 

During on one of our test, we are require to extract Product Key from Surface RT. We found a solution to do that.

Credit to Myriachan (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2442791) . Save below script to batch file (*.bat)

::' Windows RT 8.0 Product Key Dumper by Myria of xda-developers.com
::' Original Windows 8.0 VBScript by janek2012 of mydigitallife.info
::' Batch+VBScript hybrid trick by dbenham of stackoverflow.com
::' Fix for keys starting with N by Osprey00 of xda-developers.com
::'
::' Windows RT doesn't let unsigned VBScript use WScript.Shell, which is
::' required in order to read the registry in VBScript. So instead, we
::' have a batch file call reg.exe to do the registry lookup for us, then
::' execute the VBScript code. Might as well do things this way, since
::' it would really suck to write this math in batch...

::' --- Batch portion ---------
rem^ &@echo off
rem^ &call :'sub
::' If we were run from double-clicking in Explorer, pause.
rem^ &if %0 == "%~0" pause
rem^ &exit /b 0

:'sub
::' Read the registry key into VBScript's stdin.
rem^ &("%SystemRoot%\System32\reg.exe" query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT
\CurrentVersion" /v DigitalProductId | cscript //nologo //e:vbscript "%~f0")
::'rem^ &echo end batch
rem^ &exit /b 0

'----- VBS portion ------------
'WScript.Echo "begin VBS"

' Get registry data that was piped in
RegData = ""
Do While Not WScript.StdIn.AtEndOfStream
RegData = RegData & WScript.StdIn.ReadAll
Loop

' Remove any carriage returns
RegData = Replace(RegData, ChrW(13), "")

' Split into lines
RegLines = Split(RegData, ChrW(10))

' Sanity checking on data
If (RegLines(0) <> "") Or (RegLines(1) <> "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
NT
\CurrentVersion") Then
WScript.Echo "Got invalid header trying to run reg.exe"
WScript.Quit(1)
End If

If Left(RegLines(2), 38) <> " DigitalProductId REG_BINARY " Then
WScript.Echo "Got invalid value list trying to run reg.exe"
WScript.Quit(1)
End If

' Get hex string
HexString = Mid(RegLines(2), 39)
If (Len(HexString) Mod 2) <> 0 Then
WScript.Echo "Got an odd number of hex digits in REG_BINARY data"
WScript.Quit(1)
End If

' Convert to byte array
Dim ByteArray()
ReDim ByteArray((Len(HexString) / 2) - 1) ' VBScript is just weird with array dimensions
>.<

For i = 0 To (Len(HexString) - 2) Step 2
ByteArray(i / 2) = CInt("&H" + Mid(HexString, i + 1, 2))
Next

Key = ConvertToKey(ByteArray)
WScript.Echo Key

' janek2012's magic decoding function
Function ConvertToKey(Key)
Const KeyOffset = 52 ' Offset of the first byte of key in DigitalProductId – helps
in loops
isWin8 = (Key(66) \ 8) And 1 ' Check if it's Windows 8 here...
Key(66) = (Key(66) And &HF7) Or ((isWin8 And 2) * 4) ' Replace 66 byte with logical
result
Chars = "BCDFGHJKMPQRTVWXY2346789" ' Characters used in Windows key
' Standard Base24 decoding...
For i = 24 To 0 Step -1
Cur = 0
For X = 14 To 0 Step -1
Cur = Cur * 256
Cur = Key(X + KeyOffset) + Cur
Key(X + KeyOffset) = (Cur \ 24)
Cur = Cur Mod 24
Next
KeyOutput = Mid(Chars, Cur + 1, 1) & KeyOutput
Last = Cur
Next
' If it's Windows 8, put "N" in the right place
If (isWin8 = 1) Then
keypart1 = Mid(KeyOutput, 2, Cur)
insert = "N"
KeyOutput = keypart1 & insert & Mid(KeyOutput, Cur + 2)
End If
' Divide keys to 5-character parts
a = Mid(KeyOutput, 1, 5)
b = Mid(KeyOutput, 6, 5)
c = Mid(KeyOutput, 11, 5)
d = Mid(KeyOutput, 16, 5)
e = Mid(KeyOutput, 21, 5)
' And join them again adding dashes
ConvertToKey = a & "-" & b & "-" & c & "-" & d & "-" & e
' The result of this function is now the actual product key
End Function

Run above batch file on command prompt to get the product key.


We have tested it and it work on Windows 8.1 RT.
