Microsoft office licensing

  • Does anybody have a solution to duplicate office/windows operating system license problem? I am trying to enforce policy over a wide area network and have not found a method of alerting me that a user installed another copy of office (over and above volume licensing, or a duplicate copy) on the same network. Same with Windows OS. I have run reports, but this is time consuming for all involved. Any suggestions?

    I use 3 scripts to do this that e-mail me so that I can quickly know if there is an unlicensed copy of office or the os on the network. Hope this helps!

  • I am looking for this too. While those scripts are nice, it's not exactly what I'm looking for. What if a client has a single Office license installed on all of their PCs, but the copy is genuine? I see this all the time. I can find the info from the Audit tab, but would like something automated.

    Thanks,
