Good morning,

I've been asked to gather information in my company on licensing state of our Windows machines.

Can you recommend some kind of network scanning tool which will return me information about license key and type of license (OEM, Enterprise etc.)?

Kind regards
Greg

Try Spiceworks.  It is a very functional program for managing networks and all the devices plugged into it.

www.spiceworks.com

It does not cost any money, only time to learn how to use it.  

You can then use the following report to get the license keys.  You have to read the comments because the default report lists MS office product keys.  You have to modify the report to get the Windows product keys.

This works great--can be done PC by PC, by IP range or by domain
