Need vbscript to check CAL's on server

I want a vbscript to list server CAL's (Client Access Licenses),
so i need to see:
1) How many licenses are bought
2) How many licenses are used
3) The difference between them (x licenses left or x licensed over)

I am not aware of any script that can access this information.  MS decided a long time ago to stop using that tool to track licenses sighting the changing licensing for future products which could not be maintained by the software.  You will find that 2003 server do not enable the service by default.
Anyway, here is an article as to the why half;

From that article I trust you will understand why there is no direct link to the information.
