License management software

Q: License management software

Hi,

My employer has asked that I do some research on computer license management software.

I've heard of software that can not only manage them, but lease out licenses as needed within a business.

If you have any experience with this, I'm curious to learn what software you're using, or what software you would recommend.

Thanks,

Preferred Solution: License management software

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Over the years i have collected more than 50 software licences and product keys. Is there any decent software that can store these licences (no need to do network license checks) that preferably can connect to a database on a different server so the data is accessible from any client ps with the software installed?
 
Thanks

I do not entirely understand this concept.

With WMP 9, they have me confused.

There are options to "Back Up Now" and "Restore Now".

I have a Dual-Boot system (ME and XP), and some recorded songs from a CD will play on WMP 7.1 on ME, but not on WMP 9 on XP.

What is the best course of action in handling these licenses, and what are they?

Thanks.
 

A:License Management

License Management is a tool for backuping/restoring a collection of media licenses. Those licenses were extracted from media files (audio/video) which have embeded license. Usually, those media are the one that you have purchased. Without those license, you have no rights to use the media file(s).

If you do have them, it is recommended to backup them and store them in safe place everytime you get new license(s).

I've looked all over, and see no License Management in version 11 I know it was in another version, as I've transferred my licenses before
 

A:License Management WMP 11

That's one of the many reasons I rolled back to WMP 10. MS basically says go back where you bought the track and download it again.

Backing up and restoring licenses

If you encounter an error message that indicates you are missing play, burn, or sync rights for a file and you had these rights previously, you might be able to resolve the problem by restoring your media usage rights. You have several options to do so:

If you obtained the file from an online store, contact the store to find out if it offers media usage rights (license) restoration (some stores refer to this procedure as computer activation, computer authorization, or license synchronization).
The procedure for restoring your rights varies from store to store. For example, you might be able to right-click the file in your library or click an Error button or an Information button next to the file, and then click a command. Or you might be required to delete the file from your computer and then download the file again.
The store might limit the number of times that you can restore your rights or limit the number of computers on which you can use the songs or videos that you obtain from them. Some stores do not permit you to restore media usage rights at all.
For details, see the store's customer support or Help links.

If the file is a song you ripped from a CD with the Copy protect music option turned on, you might be able t... Read more

Hello All,
 
Not sure if this is the proper place for this posting.  If not, please let me know where it would be.  My boss is looking for a simple way to monitor company assets.  Primarily how many Office 2013 licenses are currently in use.  This was accomplished in the past with Spiceworks.  He wants me to find an alternative "free" product to replace Spiceworks.  I haven't worked with monitoring software before and any suggestions would be greatly appricated.

Some time ago I purchased an OEM version of Windows 8 intended for system building (SKU: M17-8100), but never got around to using it, and the package remains sealed. It is possible that I will use it before July 29, in which case the new installation would be eligible for a free upgrade, but perhaps not. If not, will I be able to exchange it for a corresponding Windows 10 product or obtain a refund?

A:Bluetooth software license file not found

This is why you shouldn't use registry cleaners. Most, if not all, will remove more entries then they are supposed to. You don't need to bother with them. Windows is not slowed down by old entries and each one takes up maybe half of a kilobyte. I would remove the bluetooth software, then reinstall it. That will more than likely solve your problem, and don't use that registry cleaner again.

Every time I switch on my computer, the error message appears-Bluetooth Software Licence flle not found (2). I read the solution posted by DP-K on 02-11-2011 regarding reinstallation of the Bluetooth Software Driver. i  have checked HP Customer Support-Software and Driver Downloads under HPE H8-1285D. I came across Original Bluetooth Driver (sp56223.exe) but it had made no mention as to the type of Bluetooth Driver. By the way, mine is Broadcom Bluietooth Software verion 6.5.1.2700 but sp56223.exe is version 6.5.1.1100 Rev A.  Is it alright if i uninstall my existing Bluetooth Driver version 6.5.1.2700 and replace it with Original Bluetooth Driver(sp56223.exe)? Or is there another website where i can obtain version 6.5.1.2700? To digress, I recently find out that the Pin to taskbar within the shortcut is missing. When I pull the shortcut to the taskbar, there is a 'no entry sign'? Is there any way the Pin to taskbar within the shortcut can be restored? Hope someone out there can help me resolve these issues

Licence data has most likely been removed in error from the Registry, possibly by using a registry cleaner utility.
Re-installing the bluetooth driver for that device should fix the licence error. You can download the correct bluetooth driver from your country's HP website.

Forgive me if this isn't in the right spot. I didn't know where to put it.

I'm looking for some software that we can use to manage our printing in our office. We have a couple printers that we print on each day and we'd like to track how much gets printed through there. I've found some stuff, but the main function I'm looking for I'm not sure they offer. We aren't trying to see who prints the most or waste paper or anything (we don't really see that as an issue) but instead we need to track our reimbursable.

All of our printing (for clients) gets charged back to the client. Basically I want something that when you click print on your computer, you have to select what project it's for. Maybe just enter the project number. Then the software tracks how many pages (of both 8 1/2 x 11 and 11 x 17 separately) so at the end of the month we have a total of how much each project requires we print.

Does anyone know of software that can do that?

Hey Everyone,

I presently use Visdir to view the disk usage statistics of both local and network resources. It is, however, a rather horrific resource hog. Does anyone know of a better and (preferably free) program I can use for this purpose?

A:Disk Management Software

You can try WinDirStat - Windows Directory Statistics
It is free and I am very satisfied with it's performance.
Local and network directories are supported.
