Can't find my Office 2008 product key
You can do all sorts of clever searches with it. But at the end of the day, unless you find the Key Another thought occurred to me: Your spanking new Mac will be running El Capitan. It is possible that you could be better off with a later, or latest, version of Office?? If by "digging" you mean to find the key from something in Office, that is, as far as I know, not possible. It's a one-time key that isn't actually stored on the drive as part of the installation, but simply authorizes the installation. Ah, good point Jake.

I'm not sure how Office and encodes the key but since it can detect a change in hardware and must be activated again, it's possible the key is not stored anywhere on your hard drive. Anyway, the Product Key Finder is worth a try. I believe they have a free version in addition to the pay one. Just found this. Might be worth a try, if you can access your old HDD.
Please note that you should be looking for these folders in the root directory of the drive on which OSX is installed-- NOT in your user directory. I noticed that the key finder program I linked above does not work with Office since it states that the product key for Office is encrypted. If you have Office , it will work. Thank you all for the responses.. Launch the Remove Office tool and hold down Option at the first dialog, and the "remove office" option will change to "remove licensing information".
