I have 12 workstations running a very high-end machining application. The software's license manager detect the presence of USB key with a license number... I would like to be notified by email whenever any of these USB devices  are removed or inserted. The workstations are all Windows 7, the security key's are USB Hasplsm running a Sentinel driver. I suspect Powershell is the best option for reporting this. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Hi.

Powershell can do a lot, but here I would use blat.exe command line mailing in conjunction with event triggered tasks.
Like this: USB drive inserted ->windows creates an event->that event triggers the mailing task.

I have done this before but with win8.1 and USB mass storage keys. It does work similar with win7, see http://superuser.com/questions/219401/starting-scheduled-task-by-detecting-connection-of-usb-drive where it says "It should be quite easy using EventVwr" - maybe that works for the HASP keys as well.
