Software required to determine installed programs and license information across a network


Is there any software that will be able to scan a network to determine all installed software and license keys where applicable?

Currently the program we use will only determine license keys for Windows and Office.

Hi screamsavers,
It looks like BelManage has the requested capability

Hoping to be helpful,

Thanks for that information, however judging by the screenshot it will only show OS product key information. I would like to be able to see others such as Office, Nero and Adobe products.

Any other suggestions would be great.
I use Belarc Advisor, which is a free download for non-commerical use. It gives the license keys for Adobe Acrobat, IBM Client Access, Norton System Works and a full litany of Microsoft Office programs.

I assume that Belarc Manager has similar capabilities.

Thanks Brad, that does look good.

There are stil applications that it does not find keys for, such as Office products InfoPath and Visio, and Nero.

I would like to award you the points if nothing more comprehensive if suggested in the next few hours.

Thanks again.
