I do yearly Microsoft audits and need to know on any given computer if Visio 2013 or Project 2013 was activated by a MAK license or an MSDN license. Is there any way KACE1000 can pull this info and report back? I know this was able to be done in versions 2010 and below but I don't believe 2013 and up keep the activation key in the registry the same way, if at all.

You can get the license status by running cscript ospp.vbs /dstatus. You can find ospp.vbs in the Office install folder but that will vary if you have a mixture of x86 and x64 machines in your environment. I would recommend using a script that detects the OS version and pipes the output of the file to a known location and pair that with a custom inventory rule to pull that into the inventory database.

While having the data in KACE is nice you might also want to look at the Volume Activation Management Tool. You can use it to query machines for both their Windows and Office activation keys and also change them if needed.
