Hi there,

In the software inventory module, how can I get Spiceworks to automatically retrieve the license keys other than Microsoft products (like Adobe...), so I dont have to enter them manually?

Thanks for your help,
Rene

By default Spiceworks can't retrieve all of the installed softwares license key but your Operating Systems license and some others.Though there are some plugins but I haven't seen any plugin that it can retrieve all the licenses automatically.But I hope very soon there might be.

@rigan123:
Thanks for your comment.  I'm new to Spiceworks. I'll look at plugins later. To bad it only automatically retrieve MS serials.

@shahzoor:
Are you saying that using Spiceworks is not safe? Why is it not a good idea to save the serial keys of all other software?

Thanks,
Rene
