Question: How Do I Find My Internet Download Manager Serial Number?

Before you can install Internet Download Manager (IDM) you'll need to find the serial number that came with the software. IDM requires that you enter a unique serial number.

If you've lost your serial number, there is a way to find it as long as IDM is still installed. You might be able to find your Internet Download Manager serial number if you've uninstalled the program but only if the serial number information was left in the Windows Registry.

The Internet Download Manager serial number is actually more of a product key than a serial number but as with most software, the terms are usually used interchangeably.

Answer: The best way to find your Internet Download Manager serial number is with a product key finder program.

A free product key finder program will automatically search your computer's registry for your Internet Download Manager serial number and for product keys and serial numbers for your other software programs.

The product key finder program that I've confirmed will find your Internet Download Manager serial number is LicenseCrawler. If it doesn't find your serial number, try one of the other key finder programs that I linked to above and then let me know it didn't work so I can keep this page updated.

Most product key finder programs are designed to find the product keys for operating systems like Windows XP or Windows Vista but some of them find product keys and serial numbers for several other programs too, including Internet Download Manager.

Important: You may have come across Internet Download Manager keygen programs or other kinds of Internet Download Manager cracks but keep in mind that these are not legal ways of obtaining serial numbers or product keys. The only legal way of installing this program is by using a valid Internet Download Manager serial number obtained through a legal purchase of the software.
