    I found a way to do it. Thank you PDQ.

    The only downside so far, there are multiple users on the same PC that push values to the report. I'd like to see only the current user.

    How do you remotely determine if the license has been activated?

    And are you standard licensed, or enterprise licensed (pooled licenses)?

    My report filters down and gets to the Registry, it then determines if Registry has a value of "Serial Number".

     

    Edit: We are on PDQ Inventory 12 (Release 4) Pro Mode. We'll upgrade to Enterprise shortly.

    Thanks.  I was referring to the Bluebeam license type.

    But it appears both Bluebeam licensing methods use the same registry keys for that.

    What would the different License types be? Like Vu Revu Extreme, Cad, etc?

    We have a small number of regular eXtreme licenses that are installed for specific users, and an Enterprise pool of Standard for everyone else to share.

    The Enterprise ones phone home when it's run.  If the user doesn't use it for 2 weeks, the license gets returned to the pool for someone else to use.

    So depending on usage and timing, you could have 200 users with it installed, and only 100 licenses.

    (Or if everyone uses it every day, you'd still need 200 licenses for the 200 users)

    We typically run at 125% installs to license ratio.

     

    It appears if their machine has an active licence, it has that registry key.

    If it's been idle and returned to the pool, it is blank like an unlicensed install.

     

    I had not found that documented anywhere, so thank you for your help.

    Could you export and post your Scan profile?

    I'm not sure how much of it I've customized. But here you go.
