Query for PID

Is there a way to find the Product ID once SQL is installed?
It doesn’t show under help, @@version or xp_msver information. Thanks,
I try xp_msver and results are NULL too.
In BOL, example are NULL too, so I guess there is no way.
Wait for others members.

When will xp_mserver ‘product id’ return something other than NULL, NULL?
Product ID (PID) number, which is specified during installation. This number is located on a sticker on the original SQL Server compact disc case. Satya SKJ
