Collecting Licenses using K1000 (or not!) ? Need a script / help!
There don't seem to be many articles addressing license standards (and this could be because people keep much better track of it!) so I must come to you, once again my ninjas, for learnage. You have guided me through MI's and SQL and many other awesome things, now I think it's time to learn scripting / batch files.
I've got Magical Jelly Bean's keyfinder and I've tried License Crawler but I'm not finding any "easy" way to execute these on other machines, very very quietly, like a .... ninja.
In one of the articles I kind of jacked a little run sequence: "\\PC-WITH-KEYFINDER-INSTALLED\c$\Program Files (x86)\Magical Jelly Bean\keyfinder.exe" /savecsv "\\PC-WITH-KEYFINDER-INSTALLED\c$\Program Files (x86)\Magical Jelly Bean" /close
but even locally it doesn't seem to do anything. Note: I am a script new-born, and the only script I've been able to write is a KACE dependency to push out shortcuts to other desktops.
Also, paying for a keyfinder is kind of last resort, as we are on a network and there should be no reason why I can't reach everyones registry to query some info.
I'm open to some way of using keyfinder/license crawler (or another free, manipulative key finder) or learning a fun script all out.
