Is it permissible to push the license codes through custom .adm templates, so that if/when the software is installed, it'll all be seamless to the user? If, say, the license codes are pushed to 1000 PCs' registries, but the software is licensed for only 100 PCs', and the install base for the application is 100 too - are we in compliance?

Not that I'd ever do such a thing, just curious...[8D]

Its a very interesting comment though! Personally, I would add the serial number into the actual MSI package I was deploying etc, but.....

Anyway, contact the vendor and ask them. You could also get a very interesting answer!

Luckily, a lot of our apps use network license servers like FlexLM or Wibu-Key (eurgh).

For those which use serial numbers, I've used security group membership and put a comment on the group if there is a maximum number of computers which should be placed into the group. I don't think there's a way of specifying a maximum number of members a group is allowed to have.... So theoretically there is nothing stopping a technician adding lots of PCs to the group to get the software added.
