    Download a tool from this link and then run it on a system where Office 2003
    is installed:

    The fastest and easiest tool for the activation key for Office 2003 is
    version 1.51 of keyfinder from
    http://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder/old.shtml

    Once the file is unzipped it doesn't have to be installed but can be run
    from a network share on each computer. It will find the Office 2003 key and
    also the Windows OS key. The newer version of the software 2.0.1 will find
    the key for Office versions from XP to 2007 and a lot of other programs also
    but takes longer to run. I don't know about the software that 20100213
    describes in his post and Belarc is a good program but it would need to be
    installed and run on each machine and the output is large and the program's
    installation key is a little hard to find.

    I use Keyfinder when I only need a key. I use Belarc when I need a lot of
    information about a computer.
