Hi everyone,

As you might know, Lansweeper will automatically scan licenses in your network provides they can be found in the registry of your machines (found in Software\License Key Settings).
By default, there is quite a large list of registry keys we already check, however, this list is far from complete and some entries are outdated. This requires many of you to manually add additional registry keys and values to scan the information you need. Obviously this is not ideal and we want to improve that.

If you have any software which Lansweeper, by default, does not scan scan the license key of, simply post the registry key and value here so we can include it in a future Lansweeper update!

Microsoft Office license keys 2013 and above are not in the registry, but you can find the last 5 digit/chars of the current Office key executing:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office16\OSPP.VBS" /dstatus

I wish that the result of this (partial) recovery could be registered in the "asset"->"Recovered license keys"
section after scanning, is this possible?

So with a manual registering complete keys and crossing them with this info we can have some help on the Office Keys

Everything is possible ;). However, for this specific project, we're looking for license keys in the registry so we can update the current list.
Retrieving license keys from files would require more development resources and would be something which has to be planned separately if it's decided that it will be added.
