Key Finder: Error 1314: A Required Privilege is Not Held

    I have some old HDDs that I wish to retrieve Windows Product Keys from in order to re-use on rebuilt machines (cobbling together some new from a bunch of old ones). I am using Produkey to extract the product key, but keep getting an Error 1314 Required Privilege Not Held error. I have checked read/write access to the Windows folder on the HDD, and even changed the owner of the entire Windows folder to my (admin) login, but to no avail.

    Am, I missing something fundamental about access groups here....??

    Thanks in advance,

    I've solved my own problem. I needed to 'Run as Administrator'. All working OK now...
