    You mean INSTALL, not "Download"
    Yes you can find the key, using a small free program
    Get it here

    http://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder.shtml


    The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is a freeware utility that retrieves your
    Product Key (cd key) used to install windows from your registry. It has the
    options to copy the key to clipboard, save it to a text file, or print it
    for safekeeping. It works on Windows 95, 98, ME, NT4, 2000, XP, Server 2003,
    Windows Vista, Office 97, Office XP, and Office 2003.

    This version is a quick bug fix to remedy the broken "Change Windows Key" in
    Windows XP.

    You're more likely to get useful answers by asking in an Imagine Cup forum:

    http://imaginecup.com/Community/forums/5.aspx

    Or by contacting the Imagine Cup organisers:

    http://imaginecup.com/Support/contactus.aspx

    I really doubt anyone here will know what product keys are being distributed
    with the Imagine Cup.

    Did you by any chance notice this is a Windows Vista newsgroup, not XP?
