Finding lost Backup Exec License Keys

Ever had problems with finding your misplaced license keys when Backup Exec won't open?  Try this little trick:  Look for besernum.xml in c:\windows\ or windows\system32.  This little xml file should contain the license keys needed to reinstall back with your current licenses.

Alternative method within Backup Exec software

You can also view your currently installed keys by going to Tools > Serial Numbers and Installation on older versions of BE
or Tools > Install Options and License Keys on the newer versions.
