As always, when you need something you can’t find it.
I needed to restore my windows system, but alas, no CD and my Certificate of Authentication was barely legible.
Saved by a colleague of mine. She sent me a VB script that I used to retrieve my 25-digit code from my computer.
With that in hand, I downloaded a recovery disk from Microsoft. (Download recovery disk from here)..
You can download a transcribed copy of the VB script into VBA below.
